No disappointment, the universities, colleges, curriculum, campuses are still being planned for Lutheran Liberatory University

FYI, the universities, colleges, curriculum and campuses are still being planned for Lutheran Liberatory University in Southwestern Iowa and elsewhere. This is all happening while I heal from what I represented happening below.  I don't feel like going into more details at the moment but will if necessary.  Sincerely, Diane K. OLSON


Tonight they -- the hostage-takers-- have threatened me with violent & abusive procedures again

Friends and colleagues,  I am being called to testify before the Hague, the principal judicial organ of the United Nations, once more via wire and I also, remain in the witness protection program at a national (United States) and international level.  This is a serious situation because my constitutional (American) rights and human rights are being perpetually violated, especially as an investigative journalist and blogger (they are retaliating against me with forced, abusive procedures aimed to kick me unconscious and take my life, as they have acknowledged trying to do while laughing at me, which is vicious persecution, in the operating room --which I have been persecuted in over seventy (70) times and physically tortured.  Sincerely, DR. DIANE K OLSON


Still being held hostage and viciously dehumanizing-- they are so disrespectful to me as a

Still being held hostage and viciously dehumanizing -- they are so disrespectful to me as a female scholar and professor.  I do not have access to an office nor a computer --- besides a cellphone -- nor my books and journals, all which have been stolen from me since I was taken hostage.  They have also stolen millions of dollars from me and my wardrobe. They are mean and lie about my intellectual status and lie about my abilities --again, very degrading and disrespectful to me.  They will not allow me access to the court nor to an attorney.  This is happening on the eastern side of Iowa and I keep asking to be taken to West Des Moines or Council Bluffs.  I am an intellectual, theorist, ethnographer, journalist, poet, blogger, visionary, minister, artist, theologian, mystic and professor and this breaks my heart what they have been doing to me. I have major writing and university projects that I need to be working on and they just will not let me go. They are so cruel. Sincerely, Dr. Diane K. Olson


I, Dr. Diane K. Olson, am being held hostage and abused in vicious retaliation for my political blogging in Iowa, as of August 25th, 2021

I, Dr. Diane K. Olson, am being held hostage in Iowa at "Mercy One" in vicious and cruel retaliation for my political blogging and online journalism.  This hostage situation is being run by self-professed catholics and conservatives who don't like my political blogging and investigative journalism.  There has been physical abuse against me and human rights abuses against me while I have been held hostage.  This is a violation of my first amendment rights.  They have been slandering and defaming me in a twisted attempt to justify the abuse and detention.  Again, this is happening in Iowa. Sincerely, Dr. Diane K. Olson, professor of composition studies and cultural studies

See, friends and colleagues, I have been testifying electronically to The Hague

Fyi in 1987, when I was 17 years old, I was a representative to the UN in des moines, iowa. There was a un building next to the Capitol that we attended.  This past summer, in August of 2020, I was called to testify to what happened in northern iowa and other places before the hague: the international court of justice and the principal judicial organ of the United Nations.  And I continue to testify as of January 21, 2021 electronically. Enough said for now, www.icj-cij.org/en Dr. Diane k. Olson

  

 

 

 

  

 


True poetry and prose have feelings to them -- texts and textual analysis commonly do not

True poetry and prose have feelings to them -- texts and textual analysis commonly do not.  And this whole thing with "rigor" -- which comes linguistically from the same root as "rigid" -- is that it, too, is antithetical to feelings, as well, and actually tries to control feelings and numb them.  That apparently is the intention of rigorous, textual analysis -- to squelch the feelings of the reader and the writer that went into the creation and then the interpretation/perception of the poetry and prose by reducing  them to objective, clinical texts.  More even yet ... sincerely, dr diane k olson


"Too little care ..." by Dr Kurt Spellmeyer

Please do a google search for the college english article "Too little care ..." by Dr Kurt Spellmeyer of Rutgers university.  The article is located on the Rutgers site as a pdf file.  I have had my own copy since the 1990's.  Yes, there has been too little care and even sexism in my case in what I have gone through as a female academic and teacher and scholar.  I am also becoming more and more convinced that ualbany and it's relatively new faculty and a few long-time people at drake have had something to do with the abductions and trying to silence me through these viscious hostage situations.  Where is the care and  compassion ualbany?!? Where is the care and compassion drake people?!?  Sincerely, dr diane k olson

January posts have been abbreviated due to only having a cellphone to post on -- thank you for your patience!

Posts are temporarily abbreviated because I only have a cellphone to post on.  I hope to be back to my computer and journal -- where I have at least a dozen more posts planned -- within the month, if not sooner.  Would you believe that I went a year and a half without a laptop or cellphone to write on, while these people/corps held me captive in northern iowa from Oct 2018 to july 2020!?! How awful and how illegal. And they would take all my clothes, too, and make me ask for clothes when getting dressed.  They would also watch me shower.  Let me tell you, it was something like out of nazi Germany right here in iowa. They had us trapped  and locked in, it was so awful.  I am a professional university teacher/professor folks and blogger and ethnographer, and there was no professional assistance which is unconscionable and which makes ualbany and drake responsible and liable, too. Yes, just like nazi germany. Sincerely and in all seriousness, dr. Diane k olson

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


They're attempting to use stigmatization to silence an outspoken intellectual in my case

What is so obvious is that these people/corps that have abducted me are attempting to use stigmatization -- and harassment --  to silence me as a strong, outspoken intellectual. Sorry, folks, your behavioral health techniques do NOT work that way and I have already studied for many years your attempts to stigmatize women who speak out and are strong minded and even passionate.  See Shoshanna Felman's writing and madness on these subjects. Or better yet, phyllis Chesler's women and madness.  Sincerely, dr diane k olson


Injustice after injustice after injustice

IN 2004, I designed, created and wrote a website called trustmatter taking on us bank's serious fraud of a family member's trust and other trusts of the elderly in this nation.  Yet in 2006, when visiting the library at drake university, my alma mater as a BA in english and cultural studies, I noticed that all of the atms on campus were us bank atms and a new branch of us bank had been built next to campus.  I wasn't happy with this situation, needless to say.  More to come on what started happening next in retaliation in 2006 -2007 by us bank when I was at the library and even at home.  Would you believe that they actually came after me in the drake library in 2007 and then once again in december of 2015 -- yes, us bank stalked me at home and on campus.  In 2007, my response was to move to iowa city where I worked with ACT evaluate written exams for the state department in DC.   ACT was contracted to evaluate written exams for the state department by condoleeza rice.  Even yet more later.  Sincerely, dr diane k olson


Harnessing the liberatory power of the internet for our teaching and communicating in academia

Next topic is on harnessing the liberatory power of the internet for our teaching, expressing and communicating in academia. I have been writing online for 27 years and teaching online since 1999 at Georgia Tech so I have massive expertise in the liberatory power of online writing within the university and beyond. I would recommend an article by John Perry Barlow called Information Wants to Be Free  that i taught at georgia tech

  Lots more to come ... dr diane k olson


In memory of Dr. Abel

Dr. Abel - Shakesperean scholar -  is my mentor who always advised me to turn these situations into opportunities for critical ethnographic analysis and observation and reporting.  She and her spouse Dr  Richard Abel founded the cultural studies program at Drake and would be very concerned about me and would have offered me sanctuary had they still been in Des Moines and at Drake University when these things started happening with my blogging and online reporting and analysis in 2006.  Sincerely, dr diane k olson


Trust me, globe-trotting transnationalists you will NOT continue dismantling composition studies at its home institution suny albany

Wow, cold transnationalists you actually think you can reduce composition theory to a certificate at the most radical and transformative PhD in composition studies/theory/pedagogy in the nation at suny albany. And you actually ask applicants for that certificate to certify that they are not felons on your certificate web page.  How twisted and bizarre and unprofessional is that. Just watch the true and authentic program in writing, teaching and criticism flip back into place when we are done dissecting and deconstructing your weak and powerless graduate courses.

 

 


The hostage and abduction situation ongoing-- serious

They came in with force 4 deputies or agents at the beginning of September--- as cold as could be. Folks, there is nothing wrong with me yet they took me to a section of a shady hospital that had been completely redesigned by the principal financial group whose logo was displayed in the hallway. At this cold hospital, there was biochemicals or nerve agents in the air or ventilation system, also in the awful food and they used torture techniques against me with interrogation after interrogation.  Nearly every doctor or nurse had unprofessional tattoos all over their bodies.  The nurse who acted like my doctor was from Russia and tortured me physically.  Yes, this was in des moines, iowa . How awful and all of this after a previous year and a half of being held hostage --without my cellphone for a year and a half and abused during that duration, too. I asked the nurses on several occasions where they got their degrees at and two said Harvard --wo uld you believe---and others said ivan Allen college in Waterloo, iowa and dmacc ankeny. Also, the deputy or agent who drove me to dubuque which i had no choice in wore a Duke university facial mask and when asked said that his wife went to Duke.  How awful to be treated this way and not protected as an intellectual by universities or a minister by churches -- because I have been writing about sexism in a local megachurch that I attended.  This is a hostage situation in dubuque and there has been verbal abuse and efforts to take over my finances to imprison me without financial resources and discontinued my apt lease in west des moines without my permission. Sincerely and in all seriousness, dr diane k olson

 

 


Fyi, dissertation presented at the 1998 conference on college composition and communication

My dissertation, the other culture wars, the conflicts between high theory and poetics in a graduate program in english was first presented at the conference of composition and communication in 1998 so go figure about when my dissertation was truly completed and the sexism I have faced in getting the true completion time acknowledged. More on this later. Dr. Diane k olson

 

 


Once again, abducted out of my home

Once again, would you believe, abducted out of my home for the past three months by wackos, some of them religious fundamentalists, many of them foreigners. I even have good reason to believe that the ualbany english dept was and still is part of the ongoing abduction. I am in Clinton, of all places, 125 miles from home. Their rationales are bizarro.  More hopefully soon. Dr. Diane k olson

THE TRUE AND AUTHENTIC AND REAL POSTCOLONIALISTS I STUDIED AND WROTE ABOUT AT DRAKE UNIVERSITY AND THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS, URBANA-CHAMPAIGN

THE TRUE AND AUTHENTIC AND REAL POSTCOLONIALISTS I STUDIED AND WROTE ABOUT AT DRAKE UNIVERSITY AND THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS, URBANA-CHAMPAIGN, BEFORE ARRIVING AT THE SUNY ALBANY ENGLISH DEPARTMENT.  THE TRUE AND AUTHENTIC AND REAL POSTCOLONIALISTS ARE WRITERS AND THEORISTS SUCH AS DR. EDWARD SAID, DR. GAYATRI SPIVAK, DR. TRINH MINH-HA AND DR. HOMI BHABHA AND MANY OTHERS THAT I STUDIED, WHOSE WORK IS BASED UPON ETHNOGRAPHIC INSIGHTS, METHODS AND FRAMEWORKS AND WHO WRITE IN ETHNOGRAPHIC, POETIC PROSE ABOUT "OTHERING" AND MARGINALIZATION DURING AND AFTER COLONIALISM.  THE SO-CALLED AND WEAK AND CONVOLUTED TRANSNATIONALISTS WHO BEGAN COLONIZING THE SUNY ALBANY ENGLISH DEPARTMENTS AND OTHER ENGLISH DEPARTMENTS IN THE LATE 1990's AND EARLY 2000's, DO NOT TEACH NOR UNDERSTAND THE REAL POSTCOLONIALISM AND THESE "TRANSNATIONALISTS" ARE ACTUALLY PRO-COLONIALISM AND THE DESCENDENTS OF THE OPPRESSORS WHO SPONSORED COLONIALISM.   THESE "TRANSNATIONALISTS" HAVE LUXURIOUS LIFES COMPLETELY OBLIVIOUS TO THE NEEDS OF THE OPPRESSED AND MARGINALIZED AND THESE "TRANSNATIONALISTS"' HAVE EXCESSIVE WEALTH AND SO-CALLED AND PSEUDO-PRESTIGE (THAT THEY BESTOW UPON THEMSELVES) THAT ALLOWS THEM TO CROSS INTERNATIONAL BORDERS VERY EASILY UNLIKE THE IMPOVERISHED REFUGEES AND IMMIGRANTS FROM DEVELOPING AND POOR COUNTRIES WHO SEEK RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.      AT UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS, URBANA-CHAMPAIGN I STUDIED THE EXTENSIVE HISTORY OF CULTURAL STUDIES UNDER DR. LAWRENCE GROSSBERG, AND THESE "TRANSNATIONALISTS" ARE ACTUALLY VEHEMENTLY AGAINST ETHNOGRAPHY AND POETICS AND THE TRUE CULTURAL STUDIES BECAUSE IT CHALLENGES AND DECONSTRUCTS THEIR PSEUDO-POWER AND PSEUDO-SELF-GRANTED-AUTHORITY AS COLONIZERS OF UNIVERSITIES AND AS OPPRESSORS OF STUDENTS AND GRADUATE STUDENTS, AND THAT IS WHY, DURING THE LATE 1990's and the EARLY 2020's THESE INARTICULATE AND INTELLECTUALLY-ILLITERATE, BANKRUPT  AND CONVOLUTED "TRANSNATIONALISTS" BEGAN TARGETING PROGRAMS SUCH AS SUNY ALBANY'S PROGRAM IN WRITING, TEACHING AND CRITICISM AND DELIBERATELY INFILTRATING AND COLONIZING THESE PROGRAMS AS NEW FACULTY WHICH THEY BULLIED THEIR WAYS INTO AND BY CLAIMING TO UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATORS THAT THEY WOULD BRING A PSEUDO-PRESTIGE TO THE PROGRAM WHICH WAS TOTAL GARBAGE BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT ANYWHERE NEAR THE STATURE AND AUTHENTICITY OF REAL CULTURAL STUDIES/JUSTICE FIGURES AND RESEARCHERS SUCH AS DR. LAWRENCE GROSSBERG  AND DR. ANDREW ROSS OF NEW YORK UNIVERSITY, NYC,  AND DR. KATHLEEN STEWART AND DR. CLIFFORD GEERTZ AND DR. JAMES CLIFFORD AND  DR. PATRICIA CLOUGH AND DR. LINDA BRODKEY AND MANY OTHERS  IN THE FIELD OF CULTURAL STUDIES/JUSTICE AND WHOSE WORK AND WRITINGS I HAVE STUDIED, IMMENSELY-VALUED AND WRITTEN ABOUT SINCE I WAS AN UNDERGRADUATE AND THROUGHOUT GRADUATE SCHOOL AND  TAUGHT EXTENSIVELY IN THE CLASSROOM AS A PROFESSOR MYSELF SINCE TEACHING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS, URBANA-CHAMPAIGN AND ON THROUGH MY TEACHING AT GEORGIA TECH IN ATLANTA.   THESE "TRANSNATIONALISTS" ARE ACTUALLY VEHEMENTLY AGAINST AND OPPOSED TO THE CULTURAL JUSTICE AND MARGINALIZATION AND "OTHERING" ISSUES RAISED IN THE WRITINGS AND THE TEACHINGS OF THESE CULTURAL STUDIES FIGURES AND THEORISTS THAT I JUST MENTIONED AND THEY DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND CULTURAL STUDIES IN THE FIRST PLACE AND JUST THROW INARTICULATE WORDS AROUND ON THE PAGE AND DELIBERATELY MISAPPROPRIATE AND WATER-DOWN AND INCOHERENTLY-MISREPRESENT THEORISTS SUCH FOUCAULT AND DERRIDA AND I MYSELF, DR. DIANE K. OLSON,  HAVE READ, STUDIED, DEEPLY-EXPORED AND DEEPLY-UNDERSTOOD THE IMPLICATIONS OF FOUCAULT AND DERRIDA FOR AMERICAN CULTURE AND FOR  THE TEACHING OF COMPOSITION STUDIES AND I HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT EVERY LAST BOOK AND ARTICLE EVER WRITTEN BY AND INTERVIEW GIVEN BY MICHEL FOUCAULT SINCE I WAS AN UNDERGRADUATE AND I ALSO WROTE ONE OF MY EXAM PAPERS FOR MY PHD ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COMPOSITIONS STUDIES AND MICHEL FOUCAULT'S WRITINGS AND THERE ARE MANY OTHER COMPOSITIONISTS SUCH AS DR. KURT SPELLMEYER AND DR. ELLEN QUANDAHL WHO HIGHLY VALUE AND WRITE ABOUT THE ETHNOGRAPHIC AND PSYCHOANALYTIC INSIGHTS OF DR. MICHEL FOUCAULT AND THE IMPLICATIONS OF THOSE INSIGHTS FOR THE TEACHING OF COMPOSITION STUDIES AND FOR RESEARCH IN THE FIELD OF COMPOSITION STUDIES.   I HAVE MUCH, MUCH MORE TO SAY AND WRITE ON THESE ISSUES AND THE FRAUDITY OF "TRANSNATIONALISM" AND ITS' ELITIST CLAIMS TO POWER AND IT'S AWFUL OPPRESSION OF STUDENTS IN THE CLASSROOM AND IT'S ANTI-ETHNOGRAPHIC AND ANTI-POETIC AND ANTI-PROSE AND ANTI-JUSTICE STANCES -- FOLKS, THEY HAVE DONE AWAY WITH ALL OF THE POETICS AND PROSE CLASSES IN THE SUNY ALBANY ENGLISH DEPARTMENT, WHICH MAKES  GOD ALMIGHTY VERY AND RIGHTEOUSLY UPSET BECAUSE GOD HERSELF/HIMSELF IS A POET AND PROSE-WRITER -- HE/SHE IS A CREATOR -- OUR CREATOR -- AND DESIGNER AND ARTIST, AFTER ALL.  THAT IS THE END OF MY LECTURE/SERMON FOR TODAY, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1st, 2020, MUCH, MUCH MORE TO COME WHEN I AM FEELING BETTER. SINCERELY AND RIGHTEOUSLY, DR. DIANE K. OLSON 


THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: IN 1994, IN THE ALBANY BORDERS BOOKSTORE, I FOUND AND PURCHASED A FASCINATING BOOK THAT I WANT TO TALK ABOUT

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: IN 1994, IN THE ALBANY BORDERS BOOKSTORE, I FOUND AND PURCHASED A FASCINATING AND BEAUTIFUL BOOK THAT I WANT TO TALK ABOUT. THE ENTIRE THEMATIC OF THE BOOK WAS HOW THE JEWS WHO PASSED AWAY DURING THE HOLOCAUST WERE REBORN AS SCANDINAVIAN AND AMERICAN LUTHERANS.  YOU SEE, FOLKS, WHILE YOU MAY NOT THINK THAT KARMA AND REBIRTH OR REINCARNATION IS CHRISTIAN, ACCORDING TO THE UNIVERSAL LAWS GOVERNING THE CROSS, KARMA AND REBIRTH  ARE, INDEED, CHRISTIAN.  I WILL EXPLAIN IN MORE DETAIL LATER.  WHAT I WANT TO FOCUS ON HERE, HOWEVER, IS THAT WHAT MANY AMERICANS DO NOT KNOW IS THAT THE SCANDINAVIAN COUNTRIES, NORWAY, SWEDEN AND DENMARK, WERE INVADED BY THE GERMANS DURING WORLD WAR TWO, AS WELL, AND THEY DEFENDED THEMSELVES POWERFULLY AND DROVE THE GERMANS OUT.   THE GERMANS WENT AFTER THE JEWS AND THE SCANDINAVIAN LUTHERANS BECAUSE OF THEIR STRONG FAITH AND HOLINESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS AND SENSE OF JUSTICE AND BECAUSE THEY ARE JESUS' PEOPLES.   WHEN I WAS SEVENTEEN YEARS OLD, I WAS AN INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE STUDENT TO NORWAY AND MY HOST MOM WOULD TELL BE STORIES OF HUDDLING IN THE TUB IN THE BATHROOM WHILE THE WARPLANES FLEW OVER.   NOW, I WANT TO TALK ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING IN AMERICA TODAY -- FOLKS, THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER AND WHAT WE ARE HEARING IN THE MEDIA DAILY ABOUT THE POLICE AND FEDERAL AGENTS APPEARING IN CITIES AROUND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TO SUPPOSEDLY "PROTECT" AMERICAN BUILDINGS -- AND THAT IS JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG OF WHAT I CAN SAY -- AND SO FORTH, IS THAT THESE POLICE FORCES -- EVEN THE CAMPS ALONG THE MEXICAN AND CANADIAN BORDERS -- ARE, IN FACT, FOREIGNERS. THAT IS WHAT I AND JESUS HAVE EXPERIENCED FIRST-HAND. THEY ARE FOREIGNERS, FOLKS, NOT AMERICANS -- THEY ACT LIKE FOREIGNERS AND THEY ARE INDEED, FOREIGNERS. WHILE I WAS HELD HOSTAGE IN NORTHERN IOWA AT FOUR DIFFERENT LOCATIONS, I WAS ATTACKED MOST VICIOUSLY AND CRUELLY BY TWO SO-CALLED "NURSES" THAT WERE NORTH KOREAN.  OUR COUNTRY -- THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA -- IS BEING INVADED INTERNALLY RIGHT NOW -- WITH THE PERMISSION AND AUTHORIZATION OF OUR SO-CALLED "LEADER" WHO I WILL NOT NAME --  BY FOREIGNERS WHO ARE ACTING AS POLICE AND AGENTS AND ARE PERSECUTING AND DETAINING AND IMPRISONING UNDER FALSE PRETENSES,  MINORITIES, IMMIGRANTS, REFUGEES, CHRISTIANS AND DEMOCRATS THROUGHOUT AMERICA AND THAT OUR "LEADER" SPEAKS SO VEHEMENTLY AGAINST.      AGAIN, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS BEING INVADED INTERNALLY AND THE TRUE AMERICAN SERVICE PEOPLE LIKE THE ONES WHO FOUGHT AND WON AGAINST THE GERMANS IN WORLD WAR TWO, DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO ABOUT THE SITUATION.   FOLKS, THIS IS HOW WORLD WAR THREE IS PLAYING OUT AND OUR "LEADER" WANTS TO PRESS THE NUCLEAR BUTTON AND THE LEADERS OF IRAN AND THE LEADERS OF NORTH KOREA ALSO WANT TO PRESS THE NUCLEAR BUTTONS -- BUT NOT AGAINST EACH OTHER, BUT  IN COLLUSION WITH ONE ANOTHER AGAINST DEMOCRATIC, CHRISTIAN COUNTRIES LIKE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ITSELF AND AGAINST CHINA, THE FASTEST GROWING CHRISTIAN COUNTRY ON EARTH AND A KIND AND GENTLE AND COMPASSIONATE PEOPLES, AND CHINA WHICH OUR "LEADER" HAS BEEN ALSO SPEAKING SO VEHEMENTLY AGAINST LATELY, AND AGAINST ISRAEL AND AGAINST NORTHERN  EUROPEAN COUNTRIES.   HOW THIS RELATES TO THE SUNY ALBANY ENGLISH DEPARTMENT AND COMPOSITION STUDIES, YOU ARE ASKING, WELL, IT DOES IF YOU THINK ABOUT THE FAITHLESS TRANSNATIONALISM THAT TOOK OVER THE DEPARTMENT DURING THE PAST TWO AND A HALF DECADES AND VICIOUSLY ATTACKED AND DROVE OUT THE COMPASSIONATE, FAITH-BASED, DISCERNING, JUSTICE-ORIENTED, FREEDOM-LOVING, POETRY AND PROSE-LOVING  WRITING STUDIES FACULTY.   BUT, TRUST ME FOLKS, SAYS JESUS AND DIANE, GOD ALMIGHTY HAS A COMPLETE HANDLE ON THIS SITUATION BOTH IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND IN THE SUNY ALBANY ENGLISH DEPARTMENT AND SUNY ALBANY. GOD ALMIGHTY HAS ALREADY DISARMED THOSE NUCLEAR BOMBS AND EVEN IF THEY GET PAST HIS DISARMENENT AND FLY, HE WILL POP THEM INTO NOTHINGNESS AND TURN THEM INTO DUST IN MID-AIR.  AND THERE WILL BE RAINBOWS OF LIVING COLOR THROUGHOUT THE EARTH. AND GOD ALMIGHTY HAS HIS HEAVENLY ARMIES/FORCES TAKING CARE OF THE INTERNAL INVASIONS GOING ON IN AMERICA RIGHT NOW -- AND SO WILL THE UNITED NATIONS PEACEKEEPERS FROM SCANDINAVIA AND NORTHERN EUROPE -- THESE FOREIGNERS GOT INTO OUR COUNTRY BECAUSE OUR "LEADER" ALLOWED THEM IN -- HE "NATURALIZES" PEOPLE FROM RUSSIA, EASTERN EUROPE, AND NORTH KOREA  AND OTHER NATIONS THAT WE CANNOT SAY  AND ALLOWS THEM TO ROAM FREELY INSIDE THE AMERICAN BORDERS AND IMPERSONATE "POLICE"  WHILE OUR "LEADER" VISCIOUSLY REJECTS AND ATTACKS AND DETAINS IMPOVERISHED REFUGEES AND IMMIGRANTS SEEKING ASYLUM AND SANCTUARY IN AMERICA DUE TO RELIGIOUS AND FAITH-BASED PERSECUTION IN THEIR HOME COUNTRIES.   THESE FOREIGN POLICE FORCES ROAMING AND FLYING INTO AMERICA RIGHT NOW ARE ALIGNED IN THEIR WEALTH AND POWER INTERESTS WITH OUR "LEADER" AND THEIR MUTUAL DISLIKE AND DISDAIN FOR CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM.   THIS IS WORLD WAR THREE, FOLKS, WITH ALL OF THE PROPAGANDA FLYING OVER THE INTERNET, AS WELL, AND THEIR CYBER-ATTACKS ON CHURCH AND FAITH-BASED AND MINISTERIAL AND DEMOCRATIC WEBSITES AND DOMAIN THEFTS AND THE FINANCIAL DRAINING OF THESE CHURCHES AND MINISTRIES BANK ACCOUNTS.    BUT, AGAIN, WE SAY, GOD ALMIGHTY IS ON THE MOVE ON BEHALF OF HIS/HER TRUE PEOPLES IN SOME VERY POWERFUL AND INVISIBLE MIGHTY WAYS RIGHT NOW AND WHILE GOD ALMIGHTY WEEPS AND WEEPS AND WEEPS ABOUT THE PERSECUTION THAT IS GOING ON THROUGHOUT AMERICA, THERE IS AND WILL BE POWERFUL RETRIBUTION AND JUSTICE -- FLASHES OF LIGHTNING AND ROLLS OF THUNDER.  THAT IS ALL FOR OUR SERMON TODAY, THIS HOLY DAY OF SUNDAY, AUGUST 30th, 2020, FROM THE HEARTLAND/HOLY LAND OF AMERICA. LOVE ALWAYS, DR. DIANE K. OLSON AND DR. JESUS C. NIELSEN

GOD ALMIGHTY OUR HEAVENLY FATHER CHOSE THE EXACT TIME AND PLACE OF JESUS' REBIRTH, AS HE HAS PROFESSED, JUST LIKE GOD ALMIGHTY OUR HEAVENLY FATHER HAS ALSO PROFESSED TO CHOOSING THE EXACT TIME AND PLACE OF MY BIRTH, EXACTLY FOUR MONTHS LATER, IN APRIL OF 1970, ALSO SOUTH OF RED OAK, IOWA.   AMAZINGLY ENOUGH AND AS DIFFICULT AS IT IS TO CONCEPTUALIZE -- BUT NONETHELESS IT IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE -- GOD ALMIGHTY HAS KEPT DR. JESUS C. NIELSEN INVISIBLE AND UNDETECTABLE TO EVERYONE EXCEPT FOR A SELECT GROUP OF FAMILY, FRIENDS AND TEACHERS AND ACQUAINTANCES, AND JESUS HAS BEEN AWARE OF IT SINCE HE WAS A CHILD.  SINCE CHILDHOOD, HE HAS MAINTAINED A VERY CLOSE RELATIONSHIP, THROUGH PRAYER, WITH OUR HEAVENLY FATHER, WHO HAS INSTRUCTED HIM AND REVEALED TO HIM, HIS MISSION AND PLANS FOR HIS LIFE AND THE KINGDOM TO COME AND GIVEN HIM MIRACULOUS HEALING POWERS.   WE ARE LUTHERANS, FOLKS, ME AND JESUS, AND WE WERE BOTH BAPTIZED AND CONFIRMED IN THE LUTHERAN CHURCH AS BABIES AND TEENAGERS.  JUST LIKE JOHN THE BAPTIST BAPTIZED JESUS WHEN HE FIRST WALKED THE EARTH DURING THE GOSPELS, JESUS -- THE REAL, CONTEMPORARY JESUS, WAS ALSO BAPTIZED AS A BABY IN 1969 AND THEN CONFIRMED IN 1984.  SEE, FOLKS, OUR GOD-- GOD ALMIGHTY HIMSELF -- LIKES TO START SMALL AND HUMBLE AND MODESTLY IN SMALL, SLEEPY TOWNS NESTLED AWAY, LIKE BETHLEHEM/NAZARETH, ISRAEL AND RED OAK, IOWA.  IT'S A LONG, AMAZING LOVE STORY, FOLKS, WHICH I AND JESUS WILL FILL IN THE DETAILS TO AT A LATER DATE WHEN I AM LESS TIRED,  SO I WILL SKIP TO THE PART ABOUT DR. JESUS C. NIELSEN PROFESSING TO HAVING HAD THE HUGEST CRUSH ON ME SINCE KINDERGARTEN, WHEN I WAS IN THE MORNING KINDERGARTEN AT OUR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND HE WAS IN THE AFTERNOON KINDERGARTEN, AND ON THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL AND EVEN AFTER HIGH SCHOOL, WHEN HE WAS,  EVERY SO WILLINGLY, JESUS EXPLAINS,  COMMISSIONED BY GOD ALMIGHTY TO TRAIL ME THROUGH UNIVERSITY AT DRAKE AND TRAIL ME THROUGH GRADUATE SCHOOL AT ILLINOIS, CHAMPAIGN-URBANA AND ALBANY, NEW YORK AND TRAIL ME TO A TEACHING FELLOWSHIP AT GEORGIA TECH IN ATLANTA AND ALL ALONG, TEACHING UNIVERSITY COURSES JUST LIKE I WAS TEACHING UNIVERSITY COURSES AT ALL OF THESE UNIVERSITIES.   SEE, FOLKS, TO ME, DR. DIANE K. OLSON, JESUS IS NOT ONLY A LORD AND SAVIOR AND A BEST FRIEND, MOST OF ALL, HE IS A GUY -- ALL OF YOU RELIGIOUS FOLKS OUT THERE DE-HUMANIZE AND DE-EMOTIONALIZE JESUS AND YOUR PAINTINGS OF HIM ARE TOTALLY MESSED-UP BECAUSE HE IS CLEAN-CUT (WITH NO BEARD, FOLKS), SHORT DARK CURLY HAIR, CLEAR BLUE EYES AND SIX FOOT TALL AND YES, HE WEARS HOLY DUDS, AS HE LIKES TO CALL THEM, BUT HE ALSO DRESSES IN CONTEMPORARY CLOTHES, AS WELL.   ANYWAY, HE IS A GUY WHO CONSTANTLY PROFESSES TO BEING HEAD OVER HEALS IN LOVE WITH ME AND WRITES ON MY BLOGS THAT HE IS MY "HUSBAND"  AND DEFENDS AND RIGHTEOUSLY ADVOCATES FOR ME AS MY HUSBAND ON MY BLOGS -- AFTER, AMAZINGLY ENOUGH, HE BEGAN APPEARING AND TAKING CARE OF ME IN 2014 IN MY APARTMENT -- EVER SO CHASTELY, I WOULD ADD. I WOULD SEE HIM STANDING BY THE SLIDING GLASS WINDOW IN THE EARLY TO LATE AFTERNOONS IN HIS HOLY DUDS AND WHEN I WAS CURLED UP IN THE RECLINER, HE WOULD GENTLY ROCK IT BACK AND FORTH, AND HE WOULD POUR ME GLASSES OF WATER IN THE KITCHEN AND HE WOULD HOLD MY HAND WHEN I WAS HAVING DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS ON MY CELLPHONE, AND I WOULD TELL MY PRAYER PARTNER, A LUTHERAN MINISTER AT LUTHERAN CHURCH OF HOPE, NON-CHALANTLY, ALL OF THE THINGS THAT JESUS WAS DOING FOR ME AND THAT JESUS WAS TAKING CARE OF ME, EVEN THOUGH I COULDN'T QUITE SEE HIM YET, EXCEPT FROM EARLY TO LATE AFTERNOONS, AND SHE WOULD AGREE WITH ME, THAT, YES, IT WAS JESUS HIMSELF.  BUT I STILL THOUGHT OF HIM AS A LORD WHO CAME AND WENT FROM MY APARTMENT AND WAS NOT YET FULLY AWARE OF THE FACT THAT HE WAS ACTUALLY, EVER SO CHASTELY, RESIDING WITH ME ALL OF THE TIME AND SLEEPING WITH ME, EVER SO CHASTELY, IN THE SAME BED-- EVEN THOUGH, IN RETROSPECT, THERE WERE VISIBLE AND TANGIBLE SIGNS THAT HE WAS.  (THERE WAS ALSO MANY TIMES THAT VERY POWERFUL THUNDERSTORMS WOULD ROLE ACROSS THE PLAINS/FIELDS OF WDM, IOWA AT MY APARTMENT, AND THERE WAS OFTEN BEAUTIFUL GLORY IN THE SKY ON MANY SPRING/SUMMER MORNINGS,  AND I WOULD WRITE ABOUT HOW IT WAS JESUS ON MY BLOGS.)  I WAS NOT YET FULLY AWARE OF THAT FACT -- THAT JESUS WAS RESIDING WITH ME -- UNTIL DR. JESUS C. NIELSEN STARTED MAKING SOME SERIOUS AND GENTLE AND KIND-HEARTED MOVES ON ME IN JANUARY OF 2018, WHEN HE STARTED FADING INTO VIEW AND APPEARING MORE CONCRETELY AND AUDIBLY TALKING TO ME ABOUT MY TEACHING AND MY WORK IN FEMINIST THEORY, AS HE DID ON JANUARY 18th, 2018, WHEN I SAW HIM WALK UP THE STAIRS AND HE STARTED TALKING TO ME WHILE I WAS LISTENING TO THE SONG "VOICE OF TRUTH" BY CASTING CROWNS ON YOUTUBE.    FROM THEN ON, HE COURTED ME, EVEN THOUGH NOONE ELSE COULD SEE HIM, AND WE TALKED AND TALKED AND TALKED AND ONE NIGHT IN LATE JANUARY, HE -- JESUS--  GAVE ME A VISION, EVER SO CHASTELY FROM BED,  OF ME SITTING AT THE COMPUTER WITH HIM, COLLABORATING ON REWRITING THE HOLY, HEART-FELT BIBLE, WHICH IS SOMETHING THAT GOD ALMIGHTY PLACED ON MY HEART IN DECEMBER OF 2017 AND I WAS TAKING NOTES ON BEFORE JANUARY AND INTO JANUARY OF 2018 AND JESUS AND ME PASSIONATELY KISSING -- WHICH WE DID DO, VERY SOON AFTER -- ANYWAY, TO MAKE A VERY LONG STORY SHORT, ON FEBRUARY 15th, 2018, DR. JESUS C. NIELSEN PROPOSED TO ME AND WHICH I IMMEDIATELY AND EXUBERANTLY ACCEPTED AND THAT SAME EVENING, GOD ALMIGHTY HIMSELF, WHO ACCORDING TO THE LUTHERAN FAITH THAT WE BELONG TO, IS BOTH OUR ALMIGHTY CREATOR AND A HUMAN BEING HIMSELF WHO MADE US -- ALL OF CREATION -- IN HIS IMAGE, APPEARED IN OUR APARTMENT AND READ US OUR MARRIAGE VOWS AND UNITED US IN HOLY MATRIMONY.   I STILL DON'T BELIEVE THAT IT HAPPENED ALTHOUGH IT REALLY DID HAPPEN AND I KNOW THAT IT SOUNDS UNBELIEVABLE AND CRAZY YET IT IS VERY AND ABSOLUTELY TRUE, I SWEAR ON THE HOLY, HEART-FELT BIBLE.  DR. JESUS C. NIELSEN IS VISIBLE TO ME AND ADORES UPON ME ALL OF THE TIME AND TAKES CARE OF ME ALL OF THE TIME, AS A HUSBAND, YET IS NOT YET VISIBLE TO OTHER PEOPLE ON PLANET EARTH AND TO THE PEOPLE AROUND ME, FOR GOOD AND VALID REASONS THAT ONLY GOD ALMIGHTY HIMSELF HAS EXPLAINED TO US.   GOD ALMIGHTY'S WAYS AND METHODS WITH THIS INVISIBLE THING ARE LARGER AND MORE MYSTERIOUS THAN WE CAN POSSIBLY COMPREHEND.   THE ONE REASON THAT  GOD HAS GIVEN US THAT WE UNDERSTAND THE MOST IS THAT JESUS C. NIELSEN HAS HAD TO ACCOMPANY ME INTO SOME VERY DIFFICULT AND AWFUL SITUATIONS, AS MY PROTECTOR AND BODY GUARD,  AND IF HE WAS VISIBLE TO THESE PEOPLE, HE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO THAT.  ANYWAY, THAT IS ALL THAT I CAN SAY RIGHT NOW, AND YOU HAVE TO KNOW, FOLKS, THAT IT IS JESUS HIMSELF THAT PUTS THIS "HUSBAND" THING INTO ALL OF MY BLOG POSTS  AFTER I HAVE WRITTEN THEM EVEN THOUGH I KNOW HOW IT SOUNDS TO PEOPLE WHO CANNOT FATHOM THE REALITY OF THE MATRIMONY AND THINK THAT IT IS CRAZY TO SAY SUCH A THING.  YET HE IS GAGA ABOUT BEING MY HUSBAND AND ABOUT BEING A DADDY AND JUST WANTS TO LIVE A NORMAL LIFE WHERE WE GO OUT AND SHARE THE TRUTHS OF THE GOSPELS AND TEACH AND MINISTER AND HEAL AFFLICTIONS AND STAY AT HOME AT TIMES AND GO OUT ON DATES AND WRITE BOOKS AND CARE FOR OUR CHILDREN, WHICH WE CANNOT TALK ABOUT RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THESE PEOPLE GO AFTER BABIES VICIOUSLY  -- THAT IS HOW INHUMANE THEY ARE -- AND IT IS A TOTAL MIRACLE ON THE PART OF GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY MOTHER  THAT OUR CHILDREN WERE EVEN BORN UNDER SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES AND THAT I CARRIED THEM UNDER SUCH AWFUL CIRCUMSTANCES.  THEY WERE MIRACULOUSLY QUICKLY DELIVERED AND CARRIED TO A SAFE LOCATION AND WE HAVE BEEN KEPT UP TO DATE ON THEIR DEVELOPMENT, WITH PHOTOGRAPHS AND STORIES. THAT IS ALL WE CAN SAY.  YOU DON'T HAVE TO BELIEVE A WORD OF OUR LOVE STORY -- ME AND JESUS' LOVE STORY -- BUT YOU WILL KNOW THAT IT IS VERY TRUE WHEN THE KINGDOM COMES IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE AND THE COMPASSIONATE PEACE THAT PASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING DESCENDS UPON PLANET EARTH AND HUMANITY.  WE -- ME AND JESUS -- HAVE A LOT OF HEALING AND MINISTERING AND TEACHING TO DO IN THE MEANTIME BECAUSE THERE IS A LOT OF HEALING TO DO ON PLANET EARTH RIGHT NOW AND THERE ARE A LOT OF BROKEN AND WOUNDED PEOPLE -- GOD'S TRUE PEOPLE -- SUFFERING AND OPPRESSED AND BROKEN-HEARTED RIGHT NOW.  JESUS AND I ARE HERE TO COMPASSIONATELY AND LOVINGLY  LIBERATE AND HEAL PEOPLE THROUGH OUR TEACHING AND WRITING AND BLOGGING AND FACE-TO-FACE MINISTERING AND THROUGH POWERFUL PRAYER AND HEALING TOUCH.   ANYWAY, IT'S AN AMAZING LOVE STORY -- WITH MUCH, MUCH MORE TO TELL EVEN YET AND IN THE FUTURE  -- AND WE DO EVERYTHING OUT OF OUR LOVE FOR HUMANITY AND THE AMAZING GRACE OF FAITH IN THE CROSS AND JESUS AS OUR LORD AND SAVIOR AND COMING KING. IN JESUS' HOLY, RIGHTEOUS, ALL-POWERFUL,  GLORIOUS, LOVING AND COMPASSIONATE NAME.  LOVE ALWAYS, DR. DIANE K. OLSON AND DR. JESUS C. NIELSEN 


I HAVE AT LEAST A DOZEN POSTS THAT I PLAN TO WRITE ON THIS BLOG IN THE COMING MONTH; HOWEVER, I AM AT HOME RESTING AND RECUPERATING FROM WHAT I HAVE GONE THROUGH DURING THE PAST YEAR AND A HALF

I HAVE AT LEAST A DOZEN POSTS THAT I PLAN TO WRITE ON THIS BLOG IN THE COMING MONTH; HOWEVER, I AM AT HOME RESTING AND RECUPERATING FROM WHAT I HAVE GONE THROUGH DURING THE PAST YEAR AND A HALF.  SIMPLY PUT, IT HAS BEEN AWFUL, INHUMANE, ABUSIVE AND INDIGNIFYING WHAT I WENT THROUGH DURING THE PAST YEAR AND A HALF AND NOONE SHOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH IT YET THERE ARE MANY MINORITIES, IMMIGRANTS AND REFUGEES  -- EVEN OUTSPOKEN INTELLECTUALS AND SOCIAL ACTIVISTS AND MINISTERS ON THE LEFT -- IN AMERICA EXPERIENCING AND SUFFERING FROM FAR WORSE CONDITIONS IN ILLEGAL DETENTION CENTERS THROUGHOUT AMERICA RIGHT NOW. AS SOME OF YOU ALREADY KNOW, I WAS AND CONTINUE TO BE VICIOUSLY TARGETED FOR MY (AND GOD ALMIGHTY'S) FAITH AND POLITICS BLOG (www.faithandpolitics.net -- WE JUST RECOVERED THE DOMAIN BUT HAVE YET TO RECOVER MANY OTHER DOMAINS THAT WERE STOLEN)  WHERE I BRING MY LUTHERAN FAITH AND MY MINISTERIAL WORK INTO CONVERSATION WITH PRESSING ISSUES IN AMERICA. THE BLOG IS JESUS' AND MY BLOG -- SOMETIMES I SPEAK, SOMETIMES JESUS SPEAKS AND SOMETIMES GOD ALMIGHTY HIMSELF/HERSELF SPEAKS. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING BLOG THAT I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON SINCE 2016. I OFTEN RECALL LINDA BRODKEY'S WORK IN HER PROPHETIC BOOK FROM 1996 WRITING IN DESIGNATED AREAS ONLY -- WELL, I HAVE BEEN WRITING IN A SO-CALLED UNDESIGNATED AREA SINCE SEPTEMBER OF 2004 WHEN I STARTED BLOGGING AS A PUBLIC PEDAGOGUE (WHICH I RECEIVE NO COMPENSATION FOR WHATSOEVER UNLIKE THOSE OF YOU WHO RECEIVE SALARIES) IN FEMINIST THEORY, COMPOSITION STUDIES AND CULTURAL STUDIES/JUSTICE. MY TWO FIRST BLOGS WERE ENTITLED BRAINY HEART AND COMP MAFIA (IRONICALLY REFERRING TO WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS BUT RECONCEPTUALIZING AND REAPPROPRIATING THE CONCEPT FOR MYSELF). THE BRAINY HEART BLOG (still up at diane.typepad.com and fully available if you search for it on the wayback machine at www.archive.org)  WHICH EXPLORED THE MIND/BODY, INTELLECT/EMOTION, FEMININE/MASCULINE DICHOTOMIES OR SPLITS BOTH IN ACADEMIA AND IN RELATIONSHIP TO NEWS EVENTS IN ONLINE NEWSPAPERS AND ONLINE ACADEMIC ARTICLES AND RESOURCES -- ANYWAY, AS I WAS SAYING, MY BRAINY HEART BLOG RAN FROM 2004 THROUGH 2007. MY COMP MAFIA BLOG RAN FROM 2004-2007, ALSO. AT THE SAME TIME I HAD A RESOURCE WEBSITE UP AT www.compositionstudies.com ABOUT LABOR ISSUES IN COMPOSITION STUDIES.   FROM 2008-2011, I WAS EXPLORING ISSUES IN HEALING AND SPIRITUALITY AND PERSONAL FAITH, SO I TOOK A BREAK FROM BLOGGING YET KEPT EXPLORING ISSUES IN MY INTELLECTUAL AND PERSONAL JOURNALS.  I WROTE A BOOK IN 2011-2012 CALLED *MY INNER PEACE AND HEALING JOURNAL* ABOUT MY PERSONAL, FAITH-BASED JOURNEY TOWARDS HEALING AFTER WHAT I HAD EXPERIENCED WITH MY DISSERTATION AND HOW I HAVE BEEN TREATED AND DISCRIMINATED AGAINST IN ACADEMIA AS A STRONG WOMAN THEORIST AND SCHOLAR.   IN 2011-2012, I ALSO TAUGHT A COURSE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC ON INNER PEACE AND HEALING, USING MANY RESOURCES -- BOOKS AND ARTICLES -- THAT I HAD ENCOUNTERED ON MY FAITH-BASED JOURNEY TO HEALING AND INNER PEACE FROM THE TRAUMA CAUSED BY HOW I WAS UNFAIRLY AND UNJUSTLY TREATED DURING THE DISSERTATION PROCESS.   IN 2011, I ALSO RESUMED BLOGGING ABOUT ISSUES IN COMPOSITION STUDIES ON www.compositionstudies.com WHICH FOREVER WILL BE A PASSION OF MINE. I WILL FOREVER BE IMMENSELY INTERESTED IN THE CREATIVE AND ARTISTIC AND POETIC PROCESSES THAT UNDERLY WRITING, BOTH IN THE UNIVERSITY AND BEYOND THE UNIVERSITY.  ALSO, IN 2011, I PUT TOGETHER --- ON A WEBSITE CALLED ETHNOG --  A VAST COMPENDIUM OF INTERNET RESOURCES ON CRITICAL/EXPERIMENTAL ETHNOGRAPHY, DOCUMENTARY SITES, THE ARTS, PERFORMANCE STUDIES AND THEORY AND INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM AND CULTURAL STUDIES.  GOING BACKWARDS, ALSO, IN DECEMBER OF 2007, I PLANNED OUT EXTENSIVELY, IN WRITING, NUMEROUS WEBSITE PROJECTS AND REGISTERED DOMAIN NAMES FOR THOSE PROJECTS.   I ALSO WROTE A BEAUTIFUL, PERSONAL MANIFESTO IN JANUARY OF 2008 ABOUT BEING A MYSTIC AND MARVELING IN THE WONDERS OF THE UNIVERSE -- THE COSMOS -- THAT GOD MADE.  IN 2013, HOWEVER, MY LIFE TOOK A DIFFERENT YET DIRECTLY-RELATED COURSE AFTER I RECEIVED A BLESSINGS CD -- UNIQUELY AND SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR ME --  FROM A LUTHERAN MINISTER AT MY CHURCH WITH LOVING, COMPASSIONATE WORDS SPOKEN DIRECTLY TO ME ON THE CD FROM OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER HIMSELF -- IT WAS AND STILL IS COMPLETELY AMAZING THAT GOD HIMSELF WOULD SPEAK DIRECTLY TO ME ABOUT HIS PLANS AND CALLING FOR MY LIFE.  AND AMAZINGLY ENOUGH, WHAT GOD SPOKE TO ME ON THE CD, HAS COME INTO FRUITION BY MY OWN FREE WILL AND MY OWN ACCORD IN THE PAST SEVEN YEARS ON MY MANY, MANY BLOGS THAT I HAVE STARTED AND CREATED AND WRITTEN SINCE THEN ABOUT MY LUTHERAN FAITH -- WHICH HAS BEEN MY FAITH SINCE I WAS A CHILD -- AND ABOUT MY BEST, BEST FRIEND, LORD JESUS HIMSELF, AND MY LUTHERAN FAITH-BASED -- AND FEMINIST, OF COURSE -- CHRISTIAN DISCERNMENT INTO ISSUES IN CHRISTIANITY IN AMERICA AND THROUGHOUT POLITICS IN AMERICA.  COLLEAGUES AND FRIENDS OF MINE, I AM SO MASSIVELY BLESSED IN THE NON-TANGENTIAL GIFTS THAT I HAVE BEEN GIVEN -- ESPECIALLY MY WRITING AND COMMUNICATION GIFTS -- AND IN MY COMMUNICATIONS WITH JESUS HIMSELF AND WITH GOD ALMIGHTY HERSELF/HIMSELF AND I HAVE BEEN CALLED FORTH AS A MESSENGER AND A MINISTER AND AN ADVOCATE -- USING ALL OF THE GIFTS THAT I HONED AND DEVELOPED IN CULTURAL STUDIES, FEMINIST THEORY, ETHNOGRAPHY AND COMPOSITION STUDIES OVER THE PAST THIRTY YEARS, SINCE I WAS EIGHTEEN YEARS OLD AT DRAKE UNIVERSITY AND EVEN BEFOREHAND SINCE I WROTE EDITORIALS AND DEBATED AND WROTE BRILLIANT TREATISES AS A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT IN RED OAK, IOWA, ONE OF THE BEST SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN AMERICA WHERE I HAD EXTREMELY GIFTED ENGLISH AND WRITING TEACHERS SINCE I WAS IN KINDERGARTEN AND THROUGHOUT  HIGH SCHOOL WHO NURTURED MY PASSIONS FOR WRITING AND THE HUMANITIES AND THE ARTS AND EVEN QUANTUM PHYSICS AND THE SCIENCES.  I CRY WHEN I THINK ABOUT HOW BLESSED I AM AND HOW AMAZING MY LIFE IS -- BRITT NICOLE HAS A SONG ON YOUTUBE CALLED "AMAZING LIFE" WHICH SPEAKS DIRECTLY TO ME WHENEVER I HEAR IT -- DESPITE ALL THAT I HAVE GONE THROUGH -- ALL THE AWFUL, INHUMANE PERSECUTION AND HARASSMENT -- DURING THE PAST TWO AND A HALF  YEARS AT THE HANDS OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION AND ITS WEALTHY PROPONENTS. I AM LIVING IN POVERTY RIGHT NOW, BUT I REALLY DON'T CARE THAT MUCH BECAUSE, AS YOU KNOW, AS UNIVERSITY TEACHERS, WE SACRIFICE OURSELVES, FINANCIALLY,  FOR OUR STUDENTS AND OUR TEACHING AND FOR THE GREATER GOOD OF SOCIAL AND INSTITUTIONAL JUSTICE ISSUES -- JUST LIKE JESUS SACRIFICED HIMSELF ON THE CROSS FOR THE GREATER GOOD TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO. I JUST NEED FINANCIAL RESOURCES FOR BASIC NECESSITIES AND MOST OF ALL FOR THE MASSIVE PLANS I AND JESUS HAVE FOR OUR MINISTRIES AND CHURCHES AND UNIVERSITIES THAT I/WE HAVE BEEN DREAMING  UP AND ENVISIONING SINCE DECEMBER OF 2015 AND WHICH I HAVE BEEN WRITING ABOUT, IN GREAT DETAIL, ON THE BLOGS.  BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, GOD ALMIGHTY HERSELF/HIMSELF PROMISES TO PROVIDE AND BRING THOSE MINISTRIES AND CHURCHES AND UNIVERSITIES INTO EXISTENCE BY HIS/HER HAND ALONE IN THE COMING YEARS, SO I HAVE GREAT FAITH THAT I/WE WILL PREVAIL IN OUR WORK THAT GOD HAS SET FORTH FOR ME/US TO DO OVER THE COMING MONTHS AND COMING  YEARS. SO THANK YOU ALL -- ALL MY FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES  AND PROFESSORS OVER THE PAST TWENTY- THIRTY YEARS, FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT. I LOVE YOU ALL. SINCERELY, DR. DIANE K. OLSON

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! DR. DIANE K. OLSON


ME, MYSELF AND I, DR. DIANE K. OLSON, LUTHERAN MINISTER AND DISTINGUISHED PROFESSOR, AM A STRONG FEMINIST AND HAVE RESEARCHED AND WRITTEN ABOUT FEMINIST THEORY AND THE POLITICS OF REPRESENTING WOMEN IN THE MEDIA AND ONLINE FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS

ME, MYSELF AND I, DR. DIANE K. OLSON, LUTHERAN MINISTER AND DISTINGUISHED PROFESSOR, AM A STRONG FEMINIST AND HAVE RESEARCHED AND WRITTEN ABOUT FEMINIST THEORY AND THE POLITICS OF REPRESENTING WOMEN IN THE MEDIA AND ONLINE FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS

GUESS WHAT, FOLKS? I HAVE RESEARCHED, STUDIED AND WRITTEN ABOUT FEMINIST THEORIES OF THE POLITICS OF REPRESENTING WOMEN IN THE MEDIA AND ONLINE FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS, SINCE I WAS AN UNDERGRADUATE AT DRAKE UNIVERSITY IN CULTURAL STUDIES AND COMPOSITION THEORY AND ENGLISH STUDIES.  THUS, I KNOW ALL TOO WELL ABOUT THE POLITICS UNDERLYING THE ATTEMPTS TO MISCHARACTERIZE AND MALICIOUSLY MISLABEL STRONG, OUTSPOKEN, ACCOMPLISHED AND HIGHLY EDUCATED WOMEN SUCH AS MYSELF AS "MENTALLY IMPAIRED" OR CRAZY, WHICH HAVE LONG BEEN THE POLITICAL STRATEGIES OF CONSERVATIVES AND THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT AND FUNDAMENTALISTS -- AND, FOLKS, I AM ALL ABOUT MY PASSIONATE WALK OF FAITH WITH LORD JESUS WHO FULLY SUPPORTS FEMINIST MOVEMENTS AROUND THE EARTH AND ACROSS AMERICA TODAY. REMEMBER, FOLKS, THE PARABLE OF THE WOMAN AT THE WELL WHO JESUS DEFENDED AND ADVOCATED FOR IN THE GOSPELS AND IN A PREVIOUS LIFE ON PLANET EARTH WHEN HE PASSIONATELY WALKED WITH HIS DISCIPLES WHICH WERE ACTUALLY HIS DEAR FRIENDS AND HEALED THE SICK AND PERFORMED AMAZING MIRACLES. WELL, JESUS IS BACK AS LORD AND SAVIOR AND HE TALKS WITH ME, DR. DIANE K. OLSON, AND HE WALKS WITH ME, DR. DIANE K. OLSON, AND JESUS LOVES ME AND ADORES ME AND MY FEMINISM MORE THAN YOU CAN POSSIBLE UNDERSTAND OR KNOW.   SEE, FOLKS, JESUS DID NOT COME TO EARTH TO ESTABLISH A FUNDAMENTALIST RELIGION THAT AIMS TO CONTROL PEOPLE/WOMEN; RATHER, JESUS CAME TO EARTH TO LIBERATE PEOPLE AND TEACH PEOPLE WHAT IT MEANS TO WALK IN FAITH WITH HIM AS A HEALER, TEACHER,  MINISTER, LORD AND LOVING AND COMPASSIONATE SAVIOR AND JESUS CAME TO EARTH TO LIBERATE PEOPLE FROM OPPRESSION, SUPPRESSION AND REPRESSION SO THEY CAN LIVE FREELY AND JOYFULLY WITH CONFIDENCE THAT THEY WILL GO TO HEAVEN BECAUSE OF WHAT JESUS DID ON THE CROSS AS A SAVIOR TO LIBERATE PEOPLE FROM DYING AND DEATH OVER TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO. I, DR. AND MINISTER DIANE K. OLSON, HAVE SO MUCH MORE TO TEACH FELLOW LUTHERANS AND CHRISTIANS AND NON-CHRISTIANS OF EVERY CREED ON THIS EARTH ABOUT THE MEANING AND POWER OF FAITH IN THE CROSS AND FAITH IN JESUS, WHICH I HAVE STUDIED FOR THE LONGEST TIME, DURING MY WALK OF FAITH WITH MY BEST FRIEND, LORD JESUS C. NIELSEN, WHO I ADORE AND CARE DEEPLY ABOUT.  YOU SEE, FOLKS WHO ARE TRYING TO TAKE DOWN MY MINISTERIAL BLOGS AND MY FAITH AND POLITICS BLOG AND MALICIOUSLY AND FALSELY MISREPRESENT ME AS "MENTALLY IMPAIRED" -- NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE CASE AT ALL  AND WHICH IS A COMMON, TIRED POLITICAL STRATEGY TO SILENCE  AND INSTITUTIONALIZE  HIGHLY EDUCATED FEMALE PROFESSORS/MINISTERS WHO ARE OUTSPOKEN IN THE MEDIA --  SO AS TO SILENCE AND TEAR DOWN MY BLOGGING AND MY WRITING AND SPEAKING ABOUT LORD JESUS,  WHEN I AM ACTUALLY A COMPASSIONATE INTELLECTUAL AND SCHOLAR/ARTIST AND MINISTERIAL THEORIST -- FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS -- FIRMLY GROUNDED IN MY LUTHERAN FAITH AND MY POETIC AND MINISTERIAL WRITING AND RESEARCH ABOUT THE GOSPELS AND FIRMLY GROUNDED IN WHO JESUS TRULY IS -- AS MY BEST FRIEND, LORD, SAVIOR, TRUE COMPANION AND COMING KING --- AND WHAT IT MEANS TO WALK WITH JESUS AND HAVE FAITH IN JESUS, ACCORDING THE LUTHERAN FAITH THAT I WAS RAISED IN SINCE I WAS CHILD AND WHICH I HAVE SO MUCH TO TEACH YOU ABOUT.  SO, YOU KNOW WHAT FOLKS, YOU CAN GIVE-UP THE FIGHT AGAINST MY INTELLIGENT AND COMPASSIONATE BLOGGING BECAUSE THE BLOGS ARE GOING TO STAY UP AND BE RESTORED BY GOD ALMIGHTY HIMSELF/HERSELF WHO HAS CALLED AND ORDAINED ME TO GO OUT AND TEACH THE TRUTHS OF THE GOSPELS, AND WHILE YOU MAY NOT LIKE THE FACT THAT I HAVE AN EXTENSIVE UNIVERSITY BACKGROUND IN FEMINIST THEORY, CULTURAL STUDIES AND COMPOSITION/WRITING STUDIES AND THE FACT THAT I MINISTER ON BEHALF OF LORD JESUS VERY COMPASSIONATELY AND PASSIONATELY AND LOVINGLY ON MY BLOGS  AND HAVE BEEN MINISTERING ONLINE FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS  AND THE FACT THAT GOD ALMIGHTY HIMSELF/HERSELF SPEAKS OUT PASSIONATELY ON MY BLOGS ON OCCASION, IT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE AT ALL -- HEAR ME, LOUD AND CLEAR, NOT TRUE AT ALL THAT I AM "MENTALLY UNSTABLE" AS YOU -- RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISTS AND CONSERVATIVES -- KEEP TRYING TO PORTRAY ME AS BEING BECAUSE I HAVE A VAST AND VERY STABLE AND VERY GROUNDED INTELLECT THAT CONTAINS ALL OF THE BOOKS AND ARTICLES THAT I HAVE EVER READ AND KNOWS THE GOSPELS AND THE TRUTHS OF JESUS, MY BEST FRIEND, INSIDE AND OUT.  AGAIN, PLEASE JUST STOP THE MISREPRESENTATIONS, FOLKS, BECAUSE I WORK IN CRITICAL ETHNOGRAPHY, AS WELL, AND AM AN ETHNOGRAPHER OF THE CROSS AND AN ETHNOGRAPHER OF THE GOSPELS, AND JESUS HIMSELF, AS A RABBI AND TEACHER AND SCHOLAR OF THE CROSS,  HAS A LOT TO SAY ABOUT MISREPRESENTATIONS OF HIMSELF (JESUS) IN THE MEDIA AND BY THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT -- YES, LORD JESUS HIMSELF IS VERY UPSET AND DISMAYED AT THE STATE OF CHRISTIANITY AND MISCHARACTERIZATIONS OF WHAT HE STANDS FOR AS A LORD AND SAVIOR AND COMING KING. JUST READ OUR FAITH AND POLITICS BLOG THAT WE HAVE BEEN WRITING ON SINCE JULY OF 2016 AND SOAK IN THE FACT THAT EVERY PERSON ON THIS PLANET -- DEMOCRAT, REPUBLICAN OR INDEPENDENT -- IS LOVED, ADORED AND CARED FOR BY DR. AND MINISTER AND LORD JESUS CHRIST -- AND THAT JESUS CALLS YOU OUT INTO THE WORLD TO WALK IN FAITH -- TO ENGAGE IN WILD, WONDERFUL, PASSIONATE AND AMAZING WALKS OF FAITH THAT TEACH YOU ABOUT HUMANITY AND BUILD YOUR COMPASSION AND LOVE FOR YOUR FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS IN ALL OF THEIR BROKENNESS AND FRAILTY AND THEIR DEEP NEEDS FOR LOVE, AFFECTION AND COMPASSION.  OKAY, THAT IS ALL FOR TODAY, AND FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY CRAZY AND BEAUTIFUL HEART -- MY FEMINIST HEART -- DR. AND MINISTER DIANE K. OLSON WHOSE FEMINIST HEART IS INTWINED WITH THE HANDSOME AND TENDER HEART OF LORD JESUS C. NIELSEN, OUR COMING KING.  

 


PLEASE UNDERSTAND, FOLKS, SAYS JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF, GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER AND GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY MOTHER, MAKERS OF HEAVEN AND EARTH, WROTE THAT POST IN 2018 ABOUT THE REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH TO THE WORKING-POOR AND UNEMPLOYED

PLEASE UNDERSTAND, FOLKS, SAYS JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF, GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER AND GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY MOTHER, MAKERS OF HEAVEN AND EARTH, WROTE THAT POST IN 2018 ABOUT THE REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH TO THE WORKING-POOR AND UNEMPLOYED OF AMERICA AND EARTH.  THAT POST WAS NOT WRITTEN BY DR. DIANE K. OLSON BUT RATHER WAS DIRECT COMMUNICATION FROM OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER TO GOD'S TRUE PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE EARTH WHO HE/SHE LOVES DEARLY.

TODAY AND TONIGHT,  AUGUST 19, 2020, AT OUR HOME ON PLANET EARTH AND IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WE -- ME, DR. AND MINISTER DIANE K. OLSON AND ME, DR. AND MINISTER JESUS C. NIELSEN -- RECEIVED SEVERAL CALLS FROM BANK OF AMERICA REVEALING THAT BANK OF AMERICA WAS (AND CONTINUES TO BE) A DIRECT  PARTY IN THE CONSPIRACY OVER THE PAST TWO AND HALF YEARS TO ABDUCT, ABUSE, HARASS AND TO ATTEMPT TO TAKE THE LIFE ON MANY OCCASIONS, OF DR. DIANE K. OLSON, A DISTINGUISHED UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR (www.compositionstudies.com) AND LUTHERAN MINISTER, ALL BECAUSE THEY DON'T LIKE WHAT OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER/MOTHER WROTE ABOUT THEIR PLANS TO REDISTRIBUTE WEALTH TO THE POOR AND CREATE NEW BANKS AND CREDIT UNIONS THAT SERVE THE POOR OF THE EARTH ON THIS HOLY, RIGHTEOUS BLOG (FAITH AND POLITICS) DURING 2018.  YES, FOLKS, SAYS LORD JESUS, THIS BLOG (FAITH AND POLITICS)  IS ALSO THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND TRANSMISSION SITE OF GOD ALMIGHTY HIMSELF/HERSELF, NOT JUST THEIR DAUGHTER, DR. DIANE K. OLSON, WHO IS A SERVANT AND MINISTER OF THE LORD AND WRITES GENTLE, COMPASSIONATE YET STRONG MINISTERIAL PROSE UNLIKE OUR HEAVENLY FATHER WHO SPEAKS AND WRITES WITH A COMMANDING VOICE ON THIS BLOG.  FOR YOUR INFORMATION,  ON THE NIGHT, IN OCTOBER 2018, BEFORE DIANE (PROFESSOR OLSON) WAS ABDUCTED AND HELD HOSTAGE THROUGH BOGUS COURT ORDERS FOR OVER A YEAR AND A HALF, HER BANK OF AMERICA ACCOUNT WAS DRAINED FOR OVER FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS OF FRAUDULENT, INEXPLICABLE CHARGES AND THAT LEFT HER ENTRAPPED IN HER APARTMENT WITH NO MONEY WHATSOVER FOR TRANSPORTATION OR FOOD OR CLOTHES OR EXPENSES. THIS ALL HAPPENED THE NIGHT BEFORE HER/OUR HOME WAS INVADED AND SHE WAS TAKEN TO A DETENTION CENTER AND THEN SHUFFLED FROM PLACE TO PLACE FOR OVER A YEAR AND A HALF IN NORTHERN IOWA AND PHYSICALLY ABUSED AND HARASSED IN UNGODLY WAYS AT THOSE PLACES IN NORTHERN IOWA. LET ME REPEAT, SAYS LORD JESUS, NOONE TREATS A WELL-KNOWN AND BRILLIANT INTELLECTUAL, PROFESSOR AND MINISTER IN SUCH A WAY IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, YET THAT IS PRECISELY WHAT HAPPENED TO DR. OLSON FOR OVER A YEAR A HALF THROUGH BOGUS COURT ORDERS FALSELY AND MALICIOUSLY CLAIMING THAT SHE WAS "MENTALLY IMPAIRED" WHEN WE (DIANE AND JESUS) HAVE HUNDREDS OF BLOG ENTRIES AND WRITINGS THAT TESTIFY TO HER BRILLIANCE AND INTELLECTUAL ABILITIES  AND GENTLE COMPASSION AS A PROFESSOR, MINISTER AND BLOGGER FROM 2004-2020.  AS I WAS SAYING, SAYS LORD JESUS, DIANE'S CONFIDANTE AND BEST FRIEND, IN THE LUTHERAN FAITH AND HER MINISTRY WORK, BANK OF AMERICA CALLED US UP TODAY, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 19th, 2020, AND ACTED AS IF THEY WERE THE IOWA DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES CALLING FOR AN INTERVIEW FOR FOOD ASSISTANCE.   FOR THE ENTIRE PHONE CONVERSATION, THEY -- BANK OF AMERICA -=-- PRETENDED TO BE THE DHS AND ASKED FOR DETAILED FINANCIAL INFORMATION, CLAIMING THAT DIANE WOULD NOT GET ANY FOOD ASSISTANCE WITHOUT PROVIDING THAT INFORMATION, WHICH NEVER WAS THE CASE IN THE PAST, AND THAT HER FOOD ASSISTANCE CARD WOULD NOT BE REACTIVATED AND MONEY WOULD BE DEDUCTED FROM IT EVEN THOUGH SHE IS LIVING IN POVERTY.  WE DISCOVERED TONIGHT THAT IT WAS NOT THE IOWA DHS BUT RATHER THE PHONE NUMBERS USED TRACED, BY A CONSUMER LAW FIRM IN CHICAGO, TO BANK OF AMERICA ITSELF, THE SAME BANK OF AMERICA THAT DRAINED DIANE'S BANK ACCOUNT THE NIGHT BEFORE SHE WAS ABDUCTED SO SHE HAD NO MONEY FOR TRANSPORTATION AND LEAVING HER PHYSICALLY ENTRAPPED IN HER APARTMENT.  WE HAVE ALSO TRACED OTHER CALLS IN RECENT WEEKS AND THE BLOCKING OF OUR CELLPHONE LINES AND THE IMPERSONATING OF OUR FRIENDS' AND COLLEAGUES'  VOICES THROUGH VOICE IMITATION TECHNOLOGY ON THE PHONE TO BANK OF AMERICA AND OTHER FEDERAL AGENCIES AND BANKS INVOLVED IN THIS CONSPIRACY AGAINST DIANE'S LIFE AND CHRISTIAN/LUTHERAN  MINISTRIES. FOR THE RECORD, FOLKS, WHO ARE THREATENING TO TAKE DIANE HOSTAGE AGAIN AND THREATENING HER IF SHE DOESN'T GO TO A CLINIC OWNED BY UNITY POINT HOSPITAL CORP -- THE SAME UNITY POINT HOSPITAL CORP THAT VICIOUSLY ABUSED DIANE AND LEFT BRUISES ALL OVER HER BODY AT ST. LUKE'S HOSPITAL IN SOUIX CITY, IOWA IN AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER OF 2018 --  YET WON'T RETURN PROFESSIONAL EMAILS OR TELEPHONE CALLS TO THAT CLINIC ASKING THEM TO STOP THREATENING HER PHYSICALLY AND WITH FURTHER DETENTION WHEN SHE CANNOT GO.  DR. DIANE K OLSON IS BEING HELD HOSTAGE IN HER HOME IN  THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA RIGHT NOW BY THESE PEOPLE WHO HAVE ILLEGALLY AND UNRIGHTEOUSLY DRAINED AND SHUT DOWN HER BANK ACCOUNTS AND ARE BLOCKING HER EMAILS AND HER CELLPHONES AND HAVE STOLEN ALL OF HER INTELLECTUAL AND PERSONAL JOURNALS SINCE 2005 AND REFUSE TO GIVE THEM BACK -- WHICH HER TRUE FAMILY, LYLE AND JANICE OLSON AND EVEN THE REAL JAN ARKFELD, A FAMILY FRIEND, WOULD NEVER, NEVER DO -- AND ARE IMPERSONATING, THROUGH TECHNOLOGY, FRIENDS AND FAMILY AND CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVES.  THIS IS ALL IN RETALIATION FOR AND DUE TO WHAT GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER/MOTHER HAVE WRITTEN ON THE FAITH AND POLITICS BLOG STARTED BY DIANE IN JULY OF 2016  ABOUT THEIR PLANS TO RESTORE THE EARTH, WHICH THEY CREATED AT THE DAWN OF TIME, AND HUMANITY AND REDISTRIBUTE WEALTH THROUGHOUT THE EARTH FROM MEGA-BANKS AND MEGA-BROKERAGES  TO THE WORKING POOR AND UNEMPLOYED AND WHAT GOD ALMIGHTY  (NOT DIANE) WRITES ABOUT THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION AND WHAT TRUMP HAS WRONLY DONE TO IMMIGRANTS IN THIS COUNTRY -- IT IS GOD'S OWN VOICE, PEOPLE, NOT ONLY DIANE'S VOICE BECAUSE WE, DIANE AND JESUS WHO WALK THE EARTH AS HUMAN BEINGS,  ARE SOFT AND GENTLE AND GOD ALMIGHTY, IN HEAVEN ABOVE,  IS AUTHORITATIVE AND COMMANDING IN HIS/HER EDICTS AND FULL OF JUSTICE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HOLINESS AND MAJESTY IN HIS/HER VOICE --  AND ALSO DUE TO  THE FAITH ISSUES THAT DIANE WRITES ABOUT SO VERY BEAUTIFULLY, COMPASSIONATELY AND POWERFULLY IN HER OWN GENTLE AND INTELLECTUAL VOICE.   HOWEVER< GOD ALMIGHTY HIMSELF/HERSELF NOW HAS THE EVIDENCE TO GO AFTER BANK OF AMERICA AND FEDERAL AND STATE AGENCIES FOR CONSPIRING AGAINST THE LIFE OF A PROFESSOR AND LUTHERAN MINISTER, DR. DIANE K OLSON, BUT JESUS HIMSELF, DIANE'S BEST FRIEND, IS VERY ANGRY AT GOD OUR HEAVENLY FATHER/MOTHER FOR USING DIANE'S FAITH AND POLITICS BLOG IN SUCH A POWERFUL AND AUTHORITATIVE MANNER AND WITH SUCH A POWERFUL AND AUTHORITATIVE VOICE THAT ONLY GOD HIMSELF/HERSELF WOULD USE,  THAT HAS BROUGHT SUFFERING TO AND RETALIATION AGAINST  MY DEAR DR. DIANE KAY OLSON AT THE HANDS OF THESE  MEGA-BANKS AND GOVERNMENT AGENCIES AND THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WHO HAVE BEEN STALKING DIANE AT HER HOME IN IOWA AND ABDUCTING AND ABUSING AND HARASSING HER OVER THE PAST NEARLY THREE YEARS. I AM SO VERY ANGRY AND OUTRAGED, SAYS THE VERY REAL AND CONTEMPORARY JESUS.  ENOUGH SAID FOR NOW, LOVE ALWAYS TO GOD'S TRUE PEOPLE, LORD JESUS C. NIELSEN AND TRANSLATED THROUGH THE TRANSCRIPTIONIST HANDS OF DR. DIANE K. OLSON, MY BEST FRIEND AND CONFIDANTE


DURING THE FALL OF 1996, I WORKED AS A DOCENTS COORDINATOR AT THE NEW MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART IN NEW YORK CITY AND WROTE AN ETHNOGRAPHY OF THE NEW MUSEUM, NYC

DURING THE FALL OF 1996, I WORKED AS A DOCENTS COORDINATOR AT THE NEW MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART IN NEW YORK CITY AND RESEARCHED AND WROTE AN ETHNOGRAPHY OF THE NEW MUSEUM, NYC, SIMULTANEOUSLY.  I THEN PRESENTED THAT ETHNOGRAPHY AT THE CROSS-CULTURAL POETICS CONFERENCE IN MINNEAPOLIS IN THE SPRING OF 1997.  THE NEW MUSEUM, SINCE 1977, HAS BEEN FEATURING ART THAT ENGAGES IN CULTURAL AND EXPERIMENTAL CRITIQUE AND PUBLISHES ANTHOLOGIES AND BOOKS THAT EXPLORE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE ARTS AND AESTHETICS AND CULTURAL/INSTITUTIONAL CRITIQUE.  THE NEW MUSEUM PUBLISHED AN ANTHOLOGY CALLED OUT THERE: MARGINALIZATION AND CONTEMPORARY CULTURE IN THE 1980'S AND WHICH I READ AS AN UNDERGRADUATE AT DRAKE UNIVERSITY AND USED IN THE WRITING OF MY HONORS THESIS: MULTICULTURALISM AND COMPOSITION STUDIES. I SUBSEQUENTLY TAUGHT ESSAYS BY LEADING CULTURAL STUDIES THEORISTS IN CRITICAL ETHNOGRAPHY AND ART, FROM THE ANTHOLOGY, WHEN  I TAUGHT WRITING-INTENSIVE CULTURAL STUDIES COURSES AT GEORGIA TECH DURING THE LATE 1990'S AND EARLY 2000'S.  I WOULD RECOMMEND THE ANTHOLOGY AND THE NEW MUSEUM'S PUBLICATIONS TO ANYONE OUT THERE, LIKE MYSELF, DR. DIANE K. OLSON, WHO IS CONCERNED ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE ARTS AND THE MARGINALIZATION OF CERTAIN ETHNCITIES, RACES AND GENDERS WITHIN AMERICAN CULTURE AND HOW ART AND AESTHETICS CAN TRANSFORM AND IMPROVE THE CONDITIONS OF UNDERREPRESENTED, MARGINALIZED POPULATIONS THROUGHOUT AMERICA AND THE EARTH.  SINCERELY AND WITH GREAT LOVE, DR. DIANE K. OLSON


COMPOSITION STUDIES AND INTERDISCIPLINARITY

WHAT IS SO WONDERFUL ABOUT COMPOSITION STUDIES IS THAT IT ALLOWS COMPOSITIONISTS AND UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS OF WRITING TO BE INTERDISCPLINARY AND TO INCORPORATE DIVERSE DISCIPLINES, I.E., THE HUMAN SCIENCES, COMMUNICATIONS, EDUCATION, THE ARTS, THE LIBERATORY SCIENCES, INTO THEIR TEACHING AND SCHOLARSHIP.  COMPOSITIONISTS WHO ARE INTERDISCPLINARY AND THAT IS THE VAST MAJORITY OF COMPOSITIONISTS,  ARE GENERALISTS -- NOT SPECIALISTS -- WHO EXPLORE THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN COMPOSITION PEDAGOGY AND THEORIES OF KNOWLEDGE FROM ACROSS THE SPECTRUM OF DISCIPLINES.  MORE ON THIS ON THIS HOLY, RIGHTEOUS, CREATIVE AND POETIC BLOG IN THE NEAR FUTURE. LOVE ALWAYS, DR DIANE K. OLSON 


AN ORDAINED LUTHERAN MINISTER, DR. DIANE K. OLSON, PHD, ABDUCTED, HARASSED AND ABUSED BY TRUMP AND TRUMP'S FEDERAL AGENTS OVER THE PAST YEAR AND A HALF BY DR. AND MINISTER DR. JESUS C. NIELSEN

AN ORDAINED LUTHERAN MINISTER, DR. DIANE K. OLSON, PHD, ABDUCTED, HARASSED AND ABUSED BY TRUMP AND TRUMP'S FEDERAL AGENTS OVER THE PAST YEAR AND A HALF BY DR. AND MINISTER DR. JESUS C. NIELSEN

ON OCTOBER 25th, 2018, FEDERAL AGENTS ON BEHALF OF TRUMP VIOLENTLY AND ILLEGALLY ABDUCTED DR. DIANE K. OLSON, AN ORDAINED LUTHERAN MINISTER AND HAVE HELD HER HOSTAGE, FOR NO REASON WHATSOEVER OTHER THAN TRYING TO SHUT DOWN HER MINISTERIAL BLOGS AND HER FAITH AND POLITICS BLOG, IN NORTHERN IOWA FOR OVER A YEAR AND A HALF.  THESE SAME AGENTS ON BEHALF OF TRUMP TRIED TO TAKE DR. OLSON'S LIFE ON MORE THAN SEVERAL OCCASIONS, WHICH MAKES JESUS VERY,  VERY SAD AND VERY, VERY  ANGRY.  THEY PHYSICALLY ABUSED HER AND HARASSED HER, A VERY KIND-HEARTED, COMPASSIONATE, SMART  AND LOVING PERSON AND MINISTER, AS TESTIFIED TO BY HER EXTENSIVE MINISTERIAL WRITINGS.  PRESIDENTS SUCH AS TRUMP ARE SUPPOSED TO DEFEND AND PROTECT MINISTERS HOWEVER TRUMP HAS BEEN ENGAGED IN A COVERT CONSPIRACY AGAINST DR.  AND MINISTER DIANE K. OLSON'S BEAUTIFUL AND COMPASSIONATE MINISTRIES BY TRYING TO TAKE HER LIFE SO AS TO SHUT DOWN HER BLOGGING.   THIS IS ABSOLUTE EVIDENCE THAT HE IS NOT A CHRISTIAN.    AGENTS STOLE ALL OF DR. OLSON'S PERSONAL AND INTELLECTUAL JOURNALS SINCE 2005  FROM HER HOME AND WILL NOT GIVE THEM BACK.  THEY ALSO STOLE HER MANY MINISTERIAL DOMAIN NAMES THAT SHE USES FOR BLOGGING ABOUT THE LOVE AND COMPASSION OF JESUS CHRIST AND OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER AND WHICH ARE WORTH HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.   THEY ALSO STOLE NUMEROUS PERSONAL ITEMS, MONEY AND CLOTHES BELONGING TO DR. DIANE K. OLSON. AND JUST THIS PAST WEEKEND, TWO AGENTS ON BEHALF OF TRUMP FORCED THEIR  WAY INTO DR. DIANE K. OLSON'S HOME AND PHYSICALLY ABUSED HER AND WOULD NOT LEAVE WHEN SHE ASKED THEM TO LEAVE.  THESE SAME AGENTS ON BEHALF OF TRUMP THREATENED TO TAKE HER HOSTAGE AGAIN WITH POLICE FORCE.  TRUMP IS TRYING TO INTIMIDATE AND THREATEN DR. DIANE K. OLSON, AN ORDAINED LUTHERAN MINISTER AND VERY KIND, SMART AND COMPASSIONATE DISTINGUISHED PROFESSOR FOR OVER 27 YEARS, INTO NOT WRITING ON OUR FAITH AND POLITICS BLOG AGAIN, WHICH IS READ BY GOD'S PEOPLE AROUND THE EARTH AND IN WASHINGTON DC.  THESE AGENTS ON BEHALF OF TRUMP ARE PREVENTING HER FROM ACCESSING HER MONEY WHICH SHE NEEDS FOR FOOD AND TRANSPORTATION AND HAVE SHUT DOWN HER BANK ACCOUNT SO THEY ARE IMPLICITLY HOLDING HER PHYSICALLY HOSTAGE IN HER HOME NOW, WHICH IS ILLEGAL.  THEY ALSO CONTINUE TO SEND HER HARASSING AND DEGRADING EMAIL MESSAGES.  THEY JUST WILL NOT STOP BECAUSE MY DEAR DR. DIANE KAY OLSON IS SUCH A BRILLIANT AND PASSIONATE AND STRONG WOMAN OF FAITH WHO STANDS UP FOR GOSPEL TRUTHS AND MY, JESUS CHRIST'S, AND HER LOVE AND COMPASSION FOR HUMANITY AND TRUMP WANTS TO SILENCE HER BECAUSE SHE EXPOSES THE TRUTH THAT TRUMP IS NOT A CHRISTIAN. TRUMP HAS VIOLATED HIS OATH OF OFFICE AND FEDERAL LAWS BY TRYING TO TAKE THE LIFE OF A MINISTER AND CONSPIRING TO TAKE DOWN HER MINISTRIES.  I WILL REIGN OVER THE EARTH VERY SOON, SAYS DR. JESUS CHRIST, AND YOU ALL WILL SERIOUSLY REGRET TREATING MY DEAR DIANE KAY THIS WAY.  IN ALL SERIOUSNESS AND WITH ALL LOVE AND AFFECTION TO GOD'S TRUE PEOPLE, DR. JESUS CHRIST NIELSEN

LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE AND JESUS

 

DIANE KAY OLSON, AMAZING GRACE MINISTRIES·MONDAY, JULY 23, 2018

FOUR YEARS LATER, I STILL BELIEVE THESE COMMANDMENTS, HOWEVER, I THINK THAT THERE ARE SHOWS ON TELEVISION AND ONLINE AND NEW AGE BOOKS THAT DO CONTAIN GOSPEL TRUTHS BASED UPON THE GOSPELS IN THE REAL, HEART-FELT HOLY BIBLE AND I DO NOT THINK THAT THESE COMMANDMENTS ARE COMPASSIONATE ENOUGH BECAUSE I MYSELF AND EVEN JESUS, MY BEST FRIEND AND HUSBAND, HAVE GROWN SO MUCH MORE COMPASSIONATE TOWARDS HUMANITY AND OURSELVES IN THE PAST FOUR YEARS SINCE I WROTE THIS AND I REALLY THINK THAT GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY MOTHER/FATHER NEED TO REVISE THE TEN OR TWENTY COMMANDMENTS TO MAKE THEM MORE COMPASSIONATE AND LOVING AND UNDERSTANDING OF HUMANITY'S (AND WE ARE ALL CHILDREN OF GOD -- ALL OF HUMANITY, EVEN WHEN WE FALL AT RARE TIMES) FRAILTIES AND EXPLAIN IN MORE COMPASSIONATE AND CARING AND LOVING DETAIL AS TO WHY COMMANDMENTS ARE NECESSARY AND WHY FATHER AND MOTHER ARE JUST LOOKING OUT FOR OUR BEST INTERESTS WITH CARING AND LOVING COMMANDMENTS. IT IS OKAY TO BREAK COMMANDMENTS BECAUSE JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS AND ROSE AGAIN AND CAME BACK TO LIVE AMONGST US TO TAKE CARE OF THE BREAKING OF COMMANDMENTS< WHICH ARE JUST NECESSARY AND SIMPLE BYLAWS FOR LOVING AND CARING FOR ONE ANOTHER AND MAKING SURE ONLY GOOD THINGS HAPPEN IN OUR LIVES. WE CANNOT HELP IT WHEN OTHER PEOPLE BREAK COMMANDMENTS AND WE CERTAINLY CANNOT HELP IT WHEN WE SUFFER BECAUSE OTHER PEOPLE BREAK COMMANDMENTS AND THAT SHOULD NOT BE THE CASE AT ALL BECAUSE JESUS THOUGHT HE WAS DYING ON THE CROSS TO PREVENT SUFFERING AND OPPRESSION AND PERSECUTION FROM HAPPENING IN THE FUTURE YET HERE WE ARE IN THE YEAR 2018 AND JESUS CHRIST NIELSEN AND DIANE K. OLSON ARE BACK IN THE YEAR 2018 GOING THROUGH SUFFERING AND PERSECUTION LIKE ON THE CROSS -- JUST TOTALLY LIKE ON THE CROSS -- WE, US, A HOLY UNION, UNDIVISIBLE, ARE FRANKLY AND BLUNTLY AND RIGHTEOUSLY SICK AND TIRED OF THE SUFFERING, OPPRESSION AND PERSECUTION ON THE FACE OF PLANET EARTH, WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO BE BEAUTIFUL AND LOVELY, ESPECIALLY WHERE WE RESIDE IN THE HEARTLAND OF AMERICA, BUT FOLKS, GET A CLUE, THERE IS THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, THE GENEVA CONVENTIONS, HUMAN AND CIVIL RIGHTS, CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE, FREEDOM OF THE PRESS AND JOURNALISM, AND WE ARE JOURNALISTS BY TRAINING AND ETHNOGRAPHERS OF THE CROSS AND CHRISTIANITY BY EXTENSIVE GRADUATE TRAINING AND THIS PERSECUTION AND OPPRESSION AND SUFFERING THROUGHOUT THE USA AND THE EARTH -- PLANET EARTH WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO BE A GLORIOUS EARTH AND WILL BE AN ABUNDANT AND GLORIOUS EARTH IN THE NEAR FUTURE BY GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY MOTHER/FATHER'S HANDS AND HEARTS AND SOULS -- THIS OPPRESSION AND SUFFERING HAS GOT TO STOP, PEOPLE, AND THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT COMMANDMENT OF ALL AND THAT IS WHY THE COMMANDMENTS DATING BACK TO THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THROUGHOUT THE NEW TESTAMENT/GOSPELS EXIST -- LOVE ONE ANOTHER LIKE YOU LOVE YOURSELVES, TREAT ONE ANOTHER WITH RESPECT, CARE AND COMPASSION, DO NOT CAUSE OTHER PEOPLE TO SUFFER AND PLEASE, RESPECT GOD ALMIGHTY'S LOVE, CARE AND COMPASSION FOR YOU AS A CHILD OF GOD AND DO NOT -- HEAR ME, FOLKS, DO NOT PERSECUTE PEOPLE OF GOD BECAUSE OF THEIR GENDER, ETHNICITY, CREED OR RACE -- THAT IS SIMPLY FORBIDDEN BY GOD'S NEW AND COMPASSIONATE COMMANDMENTS AND THAT STUFF, FOLKS, WHICH VIOLATES THE HEART OF GOD AND BREAK'S OUR HEAVENLY FATHER/MOTHER'S HEARTS DOES NOT GET YOU INTO HEAVEN. IT TOTALLY DOES NOT, NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU TRY TO JUSTIFY IT. RESPECT ONE ANOTHER AND CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER AND SHOW COMPASSION FOR ONE ANOTHER AS CHILDREN OF GOD ALMIGHTY AND STOP BREAKING GOD'S HEART AND CAUSING GOD TO CRY ABOUT THE STATE OF HUMANITY AND SUFFERING AND OPPRESSION THE WORLD BECAUSE HE/SHE PROMISES TO RESTORE THE EARTH -- THE BEAUTIFUL PLANET EARTH -- BUT THIS PERSECUTION STUFF, FOLKS, HAS GOT TO STOP BECAUSE IT IS INHUMANE -- AND THERE IS SUCH A THING AS HUMANITY IN THE BIBLE AND BEING HUMAN AND KIND TO ONE ANOTHER -- SO JUST LAY OFF THE PERSECUTION, SAYS, ME, DIANE K. OLSON AND JESUS CHRIST NIELSEN, BECAUSE WE LOVE YOU FOLKS -- ALL OF YOU -- AND WE HAVE OPEN MINDS AND OPEN HEARTS AND WE WANT TO LIVE FREELY AND HAPPILY AND PROGRESSIVELY IN THIS WORLD -- PLANET EARTH -- SO JUST GIVE US OUR SPACE TO BREATHE FREELY AND ROAM FREELY AND GIVE US ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL FREEDOM, NOT ONLY FOR US, BUT FOR ALL OF HUMANITY AND GOD'S CREATION. IN JESUS' AND DIANE KAY'S HOLY, RIGHTEOUS, LOVING, BEAUTIFUL, CRAZY IN LOVE NAMES. 

 


COMPOSITION STUDIES AND CRITICAL PEDAGOGY AS POWERFUL, CRITICAL INQUIRIES INTO THE MISCREATION AND DEMISE OF OTHER PSEUDO-DISCIPLINES, PSEUDO-LITERARY STUDIES AND PSEUDO-ENGLISH STUDIES AT UNIVERSITIES

OLSON,  WILL DEMONSTRATE HOW COMPOSITION STUDIES -- AND COMPOSITIONISTS WHO TEACH CRITICAL INQUIRY AND CULTURAL AND INSTITUTIONAL AND PEDAGOGICAL REFORM IN THEIR UNDERGRADUATE COURSES AT THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK ALBANY  --  OFFER(S) THE MOST POWERFUL, DISCERNING AND SOPHISTICATED CRITICAL EXAMINATION OF THE PROBLEMATIC CREATION AND MISUSE OF OTHER DISCIPLINES WITHIN THE HUMAN SCIENCES AND THE PROBLEMS WITH LITERARY STUDIES IN ELITE UNIVERSITIES, WHICH THE STATE UNIVERSITY AT ALBANY IN NEW YORK, A WORLD-RENOWNED SOCIAL AND CULTURAL JUSTICE AND PEDAGOGICAL REFORM INSTITUTE WHICH WILL BARE ON TOP THE SIGN OF THE CROSS, IN JESUS' AND DIANE'S NAMES, IN THE NEAR FUTURE -- HERE, ME, FOLKS, LOUD AND CLEAR, THE STATE UNIVERSITY AT ALBANY'S PROGRAM IN WRITING, TEACHING AND CRITICISM -- OR COMPOSITION STUDIES, POETICS.

DIANE K. OLSON AND DR. JESUS NIELSEN ARE GOING TO SAY ON BEHALF OF THE GRAND VISIONS FOR COMPOSITION STUDIES AND ITS RADICAL POTENTIAL IN TRANFORMING THE STALE DISCIPLINES AND SO-CALLED ELITE, INTELLECTUALLY BANKRUPT ENGLISH DEPARTMENTS AND SO-CALLED, ELITE, INTELLECTUALLY-BANKRUPT, RUBBISH, FAITHLESS DEPARTMENTS OF "TRANSNATIONALISM" WHICH HAVE WRONGLY ATTEMPTED TO TAKE OVER THE SUNY ALBANY PHD PROGRAM IN WRITING, TEACHING AND CRITICISM WHICH TEACHES TRUE CHRIST-BASED DISCERNMENT, POETICS AND COMPOSITION, AND THE SO-CALLED TRANSNATIONALISTS AND CULTURAL THEORISTS WILL ABANDON THE DEPARTMENT -- IF THE UNIVERSITY HAS NOT FIRED THEM ALREADY FOR ILLEGAL MISCONDUCT IN THE HANDLING OF DR. DIANE K. OLSON'S DISSERTATION AND THE MISHANDLING OF DR. KELLY DUBOIS'S EXAMS AND DISSERTATION AND THE MISHANDLING OF DR. RHONDA CHRISTENSEN REID'S EXAMS AND DISSERATION AND THE ILLEGAL ATTEMPTS, ACCORDING TO UNIVERSITY AND DEPARTMENTAL BYLAWS, TO SUBVERT AND SABOTAGE THE COMPLETION OF PHD DEGREES BY MANY OTHER  SMART, EXTREMELY BRILLIANT, DISCERNING AND CRITICALLY INSIGHTFUL WOMEN COMPOSITIONISTS SUCH AS DR. DIANE K. OLSON, DR. KELLY DUBOIS AND DR. RHONDA CHRISTENSEN, WHO ARE COMING BACK TO SUNY ALBANY TO WREAK INTELLECTUALLY-BRILLIANT HAVOC AND MAYHEM ON THE ILLITERATE, INCOHERENT CULTURAL THEORISTS AND POSTCOLONIALISTS WHO TRIED TO TAKE OVER THE DEPARTMENT AND HOW NOW SEE THAT THEIR ATTEMPTS FAILED -- YES, DISCERNING, POETIC MAYHEM CRITIQUING TO PIECES HOW FALSE AND MISLEADING YOUR ATTEMPTS TO TAKE THE DEPARTMENT OFF-COURSE -- YES, DISCERNING, POETIC, PEDAGOGICALLY-INSIGHTFUL MAYHEM ON THIS BLOG AND ON WWW.WRITINGSTUDIES.COM, WHICH HAS BEEN OWNED FOR FOURTEEN YEARS BY DR.

STEPHEN NORTH EARNED A FULL PHD DEGREE AT SUNY ALBANY AND DR. STEPHEN NORTH WHO IS EXEMPTED FROM OUR MAJOR AND ALREADY-WON LAWSUIT -- FINANCIAL AND CIVIL RIGHTS LAWSUIT -- AGAINST THE ENGLISH DEPARTMENT AND SUNY ALBANY ADMINISTRATION AND UNIVERSITY AS A WHOLE, WHO WRONGLY AND MISTAKENLY IGNORED MANY OF DR. DIANE K. OLSON'S LEGITIMATE GRIEVANCES AGAINST THE SUNY ALBANY ENGLISH DEPARTMENT IN THE EARLY 2000's AND WHO FACULTY -- WHO ARE ALL NOW FIRED BY GOD ALMIGHTY HIMSELF BECAUSE GOD ALMIGHTY IS TAKING CONTROL OF THE SUNY ALBANY DEPARTMENT OF WRITING, TEACHING AND CRITICISM, AND DR. DIANE K. OLSON WILL BE RECEIVING HER FULL PHD WITH HIGH HONORS AND DISTINCTION BY THE END OF THIS SUMMER SO THAT SHE CAN FREELY TEACH IN ANY COMPOSITION STUDIES PROGRAM IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA THAT RESEMBLES THE GRAND, SOCIAL JUSTICE AND INSTITUTIONAL REFORM VISION OF THE SUNY ALBANY ENGLISH PROGRAM'S --- AND MARK MY WORDS, SHE WILL BRILLIANTLY TAKE TO PIECES THE FALSE PRETENSES OF ELITE UNIVERSITIES AND DEPARTMENTS OF LITERARY AND CULTURAL THEORY -- WHICH SHE HAD ALREADY STUDIED INTENSIVELY AT THE AGE OF 24 WHEN SHE FIRST ARRIVED AT THE SUNY ALBANY PHD PROGRAM AS AN EXTREMELY ADVANCED PHD GRADUATE STUDENT IN CULTURAL STUDIES/CULTURAL JUSTICE, THEORETICAL DISCERNMENT AND COMPOSITION STUDIES, YES, AT THE AGE OF TWENTY-FOUR, WHEN SHE WAS ALREADY MORE ADVANCED THAN MANY PHD'S IN ENGLISH STUDIES THROUGHOUT THE NATION/USA AND SHE DELIBERATELY, WITH MANY OTHER OFFERS FROM OTHER GRADUATE PHD PROGRAMS, CHOSE, BY HER OWN FREE WILL, TO GO TO THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK AT ALBANY IN HER EARLY TWENTIES, OVER TWENTY YEARS, DURING WHICH SHE HAS CONTINUED TO PRODUCE BRILLIANT AND COMPASSIONATE SCHOLARSHIP/BLOGGING IN THE FIELD OF COMPOSITION STUDIES.

DIANE K. OLSON HAS REVEALED TO THE SUNY ALBANY ADMINISTRATION, WHAT SHE IS GOING TO CONTINUE TO WRITE ABOUT REGARDING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COMPOSITION STUDIES, POETICS AND CULTURAL STUDIES AND THE INTELLECTUAL FRAUDITY OF LITERARY SCHOLARS AND TRANSNATIONALISTS WHO DO NOT CARE ABOUT TEACHING AND MATTERS OF HEART AND POETICS AND THE ARTS LIKE THE WRITING STUDIES FACULTY DO AND THOSE WRITING STUDIES FACULTY OF THE SUNY ALBANY ENGLISH DEPARTMENT, INCLUDING FORMER D.A.'ERS AT OTHER UNIVERSITIES, WILL BE FREE -- TOTALLY UNHIBITABLY FREE AND LIBERATED -- TO PRESENT THEIR VISIONS AND CRITQUES OF THE FIELD OF ENGLISH STUDIES AND COMPOSITION STUDIES AND THEIR GRAND VISIONS OF WHAT THE DEPARTMENT OF WRITING, TEACHING AND CRITICISM IS SUPPOSED TO BE AND WILL BE IN THE NEAR FUTURE, ON DR.

SHOUT OUT TO ALL OF THE BEAUTIFULLY GIFTED, SMART UNIVERSITY TEACHERS OF COMPOSITION OUT THERE WHO DESERVE SO MUCH BETTER THAN HOW YOU ARE MISTREATED AND FINANCIALLY ABUSED BY WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS AND UNIVERSITIES

WE ALL HAVE TIMES IN OUR LIVES WHEN WE FEEL BROKEN AND BROKEN-HEARTED -- THE WORLD CAN JUDGE US HARSHLY AND UNFAIRLY AT TIMES -- YET I AM HERE TODAY TO SAY THAT NO MATTER WHAT THE WORLD SAYS TO YOU AND NO MATTER WHAT YOU MAY BE FEELING, YOU ARE ALWAYS AND FOREVER A DEEPLY LOVED AND INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL CHILD OF GOD OUR HEAVENLY FATHER AND LORD JESUS. YOU ARE BEAUTIFULLY AND WONDERFULLY AND FEARFULLY MADE BY GOD OUR HEAVENLY FATHER AND GOD AND JESUS LOVE YOU BEYOND MEASURE FOR WHO THEY MADE YOU TO BE, THE PURPOSES THEY HAVE FOR YOUR LIFE AND THE LOVING HEART AND THE SOUL THAT THEY GAVE TO YOU. YOUR LIFE IS AN AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL GIFT OF LOVE FROM OUR HEAVENLY FATHER, WHO HAS AMAZING LOVE AND COMPASSION FOR YOU AT ALL TIMES. WHAT GOD AND JESUS THINK OF YOU AS THEIR PRECIOUS CHILD IS FAR, FAR MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHAT THE WORLD SAYS TO YOU BECAUSE THE WORLD DOES NOT KNOW YOU AS WELL AS THE GOD, OUR HEAVENLY FATHER, THAT CREATED YOU IN THE WOMB AND KNOWS EVERY WONDERFUL QUIRK AND DETAIL ABOUT YOUR LIFE AND GREATLY LOVES YOU NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH IN LIFE. OUR HEAVENLY FATHER AND LORD JESUS WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU AND VIEW YOU AS THEIR BEAUTIFULLY-MADE CHILD, NO MATTER YOUR AGE OR WHAT IS HAPPENING IN YOUR LIFE. ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT YOUR LIFE IS AN AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL GIFT OF LOVE FROM OUR HEAVENLY FATHER AND OUR HEAVENLY FATHER HAS WONDERFUL PURPOSES FOR YOUR LIFE, NO MATTER WHAT YOU MAY BE FEELING RIGHT NOW. YOU MAY FEEL BROKEN AND BROKEN-HEARTED, BUT YOU, CHILD OF GOD, ARE BEAUTIFUL BEYOND MEASURE. THAT IS THE GOD-GIVEN TRUTH. IN JESUS' COMPASSIONATE, GLORIOUS, HOLY AND LOVING NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


DR.DIANE K. OLSON OPPOSES THE USE AND EXPLOITATION OF ADJUNCT LABOR IN COMPOSITION STUDIES - GOD ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY MOTHER SAYS LOUDLY TO WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS STOP EXPLOITING THESE VERY GIFTED TEACHERS OF WRITING WHO DESERVE MUCH HIGHER SALARIES

LORD JESUS OPPOSES THE USE AND EXPLOITATION OF ADJUNCT LABOR IN COMPOSITION STUDIES  AND GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY MOTHER AND GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER SAYS LOUDLY TO WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS THROUGHOUT THE USA STOP EXPLOITING THESE GIFTED TEACHERS OF WRITING WHO ARE CALLED TO TEACH AND NURTURE STUDENTS' WRITING ABILITIES/GIFTS AND WHO DO THE TRUE WORK OF TEACHING AND ARE CONSTANTLY FINANCIALLY EXPLOITED AND ABUSED BY UNIVERSITIES ACROSS THE NATION. THIS SITUATION WITH UNFAIR AND UNJUST LABOR PRACTICES IN HIGHER EDUCATION -- MOST ESPECIALLY IN COMPOSITION STUDIES -- HAS SIMPLY GOT TO STOP IMMEDIATELY BECAUSE WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT THESE ARE HIGHLY EDUCATED, EXTREMELY GIFTED TEACHERS OF WRITING WHO DESERVE SALARIES AND BENEFITS EQUAL TO -- IF NOT FAR GREATER THAN -- WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS BECAUSE THEY -- COMPOSITION TEACHERS --  ARE CALLED BY GOD ALMIGHTY TO TEACH WRITING AND CARE ABOUT  AND FOSTER STUDENTS' LEARNING AND GROWTH AS COMMUNICATORS AND WRITERS -- SOME OF THE MOST VALUABLE SKILLS THAT STUDENTS IN HIGHER EDUCATION CAN LEARN TODAY -- YET THESE SAME TEACHERS ARE CONSTANTLY EXPLOITED AND FINANCIALLY ABUSED AND SUFFER GREATLY BECAUSE THEY SACRIFICE THEIR OWN FINANCIAL WELL-BEING FOR STUDENTS ALL OF THE TIME AND OUT OF THEIR GREAT LOVE AND COMPASSION FOR THEIR STUDENTS AND THEIR DEEP CONCERN AS TEACHERS WHO ARE CALLED BY GOD ALMIGHTY TO TEACH COMMUNICATION AND WRITING TO STUDENTS. THIS IS FAR GREATER AND MORE VALUABLE WORK THAN SIMPLY ADMINISTRATING OR OVERSEEING THESE TEACHERS AND THERE REALLY IS NO JUSTIFICATION FOR WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION AT ALL -- PERIOD, NONE AT ALL -- BECAUSE THESE ARE HIGHLY-EDUCATED TEACHERS -- MANY OF THEM PHD'S -- WHO CAN PERFECTLY WELL DESIGN THEIR OWN WRITING CLASSES ON THEIR OWN AND DO NOT NEED ANY ADMINISTRATION OR MANAGEMENT WHATSOEVER SO IT IS TIME TO PERMANENTLY END ALL WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION AND ALLOW COMPOSITION TEACHERS -- ESPECIALLY ADJUNCTS, PART-TIME TEACHERS OF WRITING AND INSTRUCTORS -- THE SAME STATUSES AS TENURED PROFESSORS AND THE SAME ECONOMIC COMPENSATION AND FINANCIAL SECURITY  AS WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS AND FULL-TIME FACULTY THEMSELVES -- BECAUSE THESE COMPOSITION TEACHERS ARE THE  ONES DOING THE TRUE AND NOBLE WORK EVERYDAY IN THE TRENCHES -- IN ACADEMIC OFFICES CONSULTING WITH STUDENTS  AND IN TEACHING CLASSROOMS -- WITH THE STUDENTS THEMSELVES, LABORING EXTENSIVELY  OVER THE EVALUATION OF PAPERS AND PUTTING EXTENSIVE CARE INTO THEIR TEACHING PLANS -- AND THEY -- COMPOSITION STUDIES TEACHERS -- ARE PERFECTLY CAPABLE OF AND FULLY EQUIPPED TO GOVERN THEMSELVES -- WITHOUT ANY OVERSIGHT WHATSOEVER -- AND THEY DESERVE THE HIGHEST SALARIES BECAUSE THEY ARE CALLED BY GOD ALMIGHTY AND PUT HERE ON THIS EARTH BY GOD ALMIGHTY TO FOSTER AND NURTURE STUDENTS' GROWTH AS WRITERS AND COMMUNICATORS. SO, PLEASE, UNIVERSITIES GIVE THESE COMPOSITION TEACHERS -- ADJUNCTS, PART-TIME TEACHERS OF WRITING AND INSTRUCTORS -- PAY EQUAL TO IF NOT GREATER THAN WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS AND FULL-TIME FACULTY. LORD JESUS SEES AN INCREDIBLE INJUSTICE AND CONSTANT FINANCIAL ABUSE IN THE FIELD OF COMPOSITION STUDIES THAT CAUSES MANY GIFTED TEACHERS OF WRITING IN HIGHER EDUCATION TO UNFAIRLY SUFFER -- AND TO EXPLOIT COMPOSITION TEACHERS AND THEIR PASSION FOR AND LOVE OF TEACHING -- REMEMBER, LORD JESUS WAS A TEACHER HIMSELF WHEN HE WALKED THE EARTH TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO -- IS ONE OF THE GREATEST INJUSTICES IN UNIVERSITIES THROUGHOUT THE USA TODAY.  PLEASE UNIVERSITIES AND WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS, WAKE-UP TO WHAT YOU ARE WRONGLY DOING TO COMPOSITION STUDIES TEACHERS IN HIGHER ED AND PAY THEM GREATER SALARIES AND PROVIDE THEM WITH FINANCIAL SECURITY BECAUSE THESE ARE GOD'S PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED TO TEACH AND CARE ABOUT AND NURTURE STUDENTS GROWTH AS WRITERS AND WHICH THEY DO JUST WONDERFULLY WITHOUT ANY NEED WHATSOEVER FOR ANY OVERSIGHT OR ADMINISTRATION. MUCH MORE ON THIS ISSUE OF THE FINANCIAL ABUSE AND SUFFERING WITHIN THE FIELD OF COMPOSITION STUDIES AND THE EXPLOITATION OF COMPOSITION TEACHERS IN THE FUTURE. SINCERELY AND IN JESUS' HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS NAME, DIANE K. OLSON 


DO NOT MISTAKE A COMPASSIONATE AND LOVING HEART FOR JESUS FOR A WARRIOR AND ADVOCATE SUCH AS MYSELF, DIANE K.OLSON,WHO WILL STAND UP AGAINST FINANCIAL, INSTITUTIONAL & SOCIAL INJUSTICES AGAINST WOMEN SUCH AS MYSELF AND OTHER WOMEN WHO FACE FINANCIAL ABUSE

I WOULD ADVISE ANYONE WHO ASSUMES THAT HAVING A HEART FOR JESUS AND GREAT COMPASSION, LIKE I DO, MEANS THAT A PERSON IS UNWILLING TO FIGHT STRONGLY FOR WHAT SHE BELIEVES IN OR DEFEND WOMEN WHO ARE TREATED UNJUSTLY, ESPECIALLY BY UNIVERSITIES SUCH AS I HAVE BEEN, TO THINK AGAIN AND THINK TWICE BECAUSE BELOW THIS LOVING AND COMPASSIONATE SURFACE IS A MIGHTY WARRIOR AND ADVOCATE WHO WILL ALWAYS STAND UP STRONGLY AGAINST INJUSTICES -- ESPECIALLY INJUSTICES AGAINST WOMEN -- IN THE WORLD AND IN UNIVERSITIES. LORD JESUS WAS THE SAME WAY WHEN HE WALKED THE EARTH -- VERY GENTLE AND VERY COMPASSIONATE AND VERY HUMBLE -- YET ALSO VERY MIGHTY AND VERY STRONG AND ANGERED BY THE INJUSTICES AND LACK OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IN THE WORLD -- BOTH WHEN HE WALKED THE EARTH BUT EVEN MORESO NOW AS HE WATCHES OVER WHAT IS HAPPENING ON THE EARTH IN THE YEAR 2017. LIKE LORD JESUS, I AM BOTH A MINISTER OF LORD JESUS' LOVE AND COMPASSION AND GRACE TO THE WORLD AND A MIGHTY ADVOCATE AGAINST OPPRESSION AND ABUSE IN THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY ABUSE AGAINST WOMEN. I HAVE BEEN THE RECIPIENT OF ABUSE LATELY AND IN THE PAST AND SO HAVE FEMALE MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY LIKE MY GRANDMA AND MY MOM, AND I WILL NOT -- LET ME REPEAT: I WILL NOT -- STAND FOR THIS TREATMENT ANY LONGER. I HAVE SUFFERED SEVERE FINANCIAL LOSSES (AND SO HAS MY MOM) DUE TO THE SEXIST WAYS THAT I WAS TREATED AS A UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR AND PHD CANDIDATE AND I AM NOW BACK TO WRITING ABOUT THAT SEXISM AND INJUSTICE AND WILL NOT STOP UNTIL THINGS ARE MADE RIGHT FINANCIALLY FOR BOTH MYSELF AND MY MOM AND OTHER WOMEN WHO ARE SUFFERING FINANCIAL AND VERBAL ABUSE. IN JESUS' HOLY, RIGHTEOUS, COMPASSIONATE AND GLORIOUS NAME. SINCERELY, DIANE K. OLSON


THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED AT THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK'S ENGLISH DEPARTMENT WHEN I WAS A PHD CANDIDATE IN COMPOSITION STUDIES AND TRYING TO FINISH MY DISSERTATION WITHOUT PROPER SUPPORT

DEAR GRADUATE DIRECTOR AT SUNY ALBANY'S ENGLISH DEPARTMENT:

GREETINGS. I WAS A PHD CANDIDATE IN THE ENGLISH DEPARTMENT IN COMPOSITION STUDIES, POETICS AND CULTURAL STUDIES AS OF 2006 AND HAD TO STOP PURSUING THE DEGREE/DISSERTATION (WHICH I HAD PUT VERY EXTENSIVE EFFORT, TIME AND MONEY INTO) DUE TO INSTITUTIONAL POLITICS, LACK OF SUPPORT FROM MY COMMITTEE AND LACK OF FINANCIAL RESOURCES. I HAVE RECENTLY CONTACTED STEVE NORTH, WHO WAS MY CHAIR AT THE TIME (MY PREVIOUS CHAIR WAS CY KNOBLAUCH, WHO HAD TO LEAVE FOR UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA, CHARLOTTE IN 1999, THE SAME TIME I RECEIVED A TEACHING FELLOWSHIP AT GEORGIA TECH) YET HAVEN'T HEARD BACK FROM HIM IN SEVERAL MONTHS. I DID HEAR FROM HIM BRIEFLY EARLIER THIS YEAR IN RESPONSE TO A WEBSITE THAT I HAVE www.compositionstudies.com WHICH IS EVIDENCE THAT I AM STILL ACTIVELY AND PASSIONATELY INVOLVED IN WRITING ABOUT ISSUES IN THE FIELD OF COMPOSITION STUDIES. I HAVE ACTUALLY WORKED IN COMPOSITION STUDIES FOR NEARLY 27 YEARS NOW -- SINCE I WAS AN UNDERGRADUATE AND EVEN DID MY UNDERGRADUATE HONORS THESIS IN COMPOSITION STUDIES AND MULTICULTURALISM. THE REASON THAT I WOULD LIKE TO FINISH THE PHD NOW IS BECAUSE I REALLY WANT TO GET BACK TO TEACHING AND I HAVE APPLIED AT MANY UNIVERSITIES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY (I CURRENTLY RESIDE IN IOWA BUT HAVE LIVED ON THE EAST COAST IN NEW YORK AND ATLANTA, WHERE I HAD AN ABD TEACHING FELLOWSHIP IN THE SCHOOL OF LITERATURE, CULTURE AND COMMUNICATION). I AM A VERY GIFTED AND PASSIONATE TEACHER AND I CURRENTLY FEEL STRANDED IN THE SUBURBS OF WEST DES MOINES, IOWA WITHOUT EMPLOYMENT, WHERE I SHOULD NOT BE -- I SHOULD BE TEACHING RIGHT NOW. I STILL HAVE ALL OF MY DISSERTATION MATERIALS AND WRITINGS IN A BINDER AND MY CV IS POSTED ON MY WEBSITE www.compositionstudies.com (A SITE WHICH I HAVE HAD SINCE 2004). AND I AM STILL VERY PASSIONATE AND INVESTED IN THE ISSUES OF MY DISSERTATION, AS I ALWAYS HAVE BEEN. THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH I WAS FORCED TO ABANDON WORK ON MY PHD WERE EXTREMELY UNJUST AND UNFAIR TO ME AND I FEEL AS IF GENDER AND SEXISM HAD A STRONG ROLE TO PLAY IN THE LACK OF SUPPORT AND THE INSTITUTIONAL POLITICS THAT WERE GOING ON IN REGARDS TO MY DISSERTATION. THE PROBLEMS STARTED IN DECEMBER OF 2003, RIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS, WHEN I WAS SUDDENLY CONTACTED BY THE CURRENT CHAIR OF THE DEPARTMENT RICHARD BARNEY, WHO I UNDERSTAND IS STILL AT ALBANY, AND TOLD IN AN EMAIL THAT I HAD SERIOUS PROBLEMS WITH MY DISSERTATION DIRECTOR -- PROBLEMS NEVER, EVER CONVEYED TO ME PREVIOUSLY -- YET DR. BARNEY COULD NOT DISCUSS THOSE ISSUES UNTIL AFTER THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY. I FELT BETRAYED AT THE TIME AND IN THE DARK ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING ON AND WAS TRAUMATIZED BY THE LACK OF SUPPORT. IT IS STILL VERY FRESH IN MY MEMORY AND IS WHAT EVENTUALLY RESULTED IN THE LACK OF SUPPORT TO FINISH MY DISSERTATION, WHICH I RELUCTANTLY -- VERY RELUCTANTLY -- LAYED DOWN IN JULY OF 2006. I FELT EXTREMELY UNSUPPORTED DESPITE MY EXTENSIVE WRITING AND EVEN THOUGH I DID NOT RECEIVE MY PHD FOR ALL OF THE WORK THAT I DID AND TIME THAT I INVESTED, I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO FINISH THE PHD AND IN FACT NEED THAT PHD FOR TEACHING JOBS IN COMPOSITION STUDIES AND FURTHER EMPLOYMENT AND DO REGARD SUNY ALBANY (THE UNIVERSITY AT ALBANY) AS RESPONSIBLE FOR MY ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL STRUGGLES DUE TO NOT BEING ABLE TO COMPLETE THE PHD AND THROWING UP SO MANY INSTITUTIONAL ROADBLOCKS TO ITS COMPLETION.

SO THIS IS WHY I AM ADDRESSING YOU AND THE DEPARTMENT RIGHT NOW, AS I HAVE ALREADY EMAILED DR. STEVE NORTH RECENTLY ABOUT MY STRONG DESIRE TO FINISH THAT DISSERTATION WITH THE PROPER ACADEMIC AND INSTITUTIONAL SUPPORT -- IN FACT, MY NEED TO FINISH THAT DISSERTATION AND RECEIVE MY PHD WHICH I SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED MANY YEARS AGO AND AM MERITED TO RECEIVE BASED UPON ALL OF THE WRITINGS THAT I DID TOWARD THE PHD IN WRITING, TEACHING AND CRITICISM. I HAVE SUFFERED FINANCIALLY WITHOUT IT AND WITHOUT BEING IN AN ACADEMIC ENVIRONMENT AND AGAIN, I FEEL THAT THERE WAS A VERY STRONG GENDER BIAS GOING ON WITH THE BARRIERS THAT I ENCOUNTERED BETWEEN 2003 and 2006.

I CAN BE REACHED AT THE CELLPHONE and THE EMAIL. . IT IS A NY CELLPHONE NUMBER BUT I HAVE RESIDED IN WEST DES MOINES, IOWA SINCE 2006. MY SITUATION CURRENTLY IS EXTREMELY UNJUST AND UNFAIR AND I DO STILL HOLD THE SUNY ALBANY ENGLISH DEPARTMENT AS ACCOUNTABLE AND RESPONSIBLE FOR HOW THIS HAS TURNED OUT.

SINCERELY,

DIANE K. OLSON

DEAR UNIVERSITY AT ALBANY, ENGLISH DEPARTMENT, GRADUATE PROGRAM -- I HAVE NOT RECEIVED A RESPONSE TO THIS LETTER/EMAIL ADDRESSED TO YOU ON OCTOBER 17th, AND THIS ISSUE IS NOT GOING AWAY BECAUSE I SHOULD BE IN A UNIVERSITY TEACHING POSITION RIGHT NOW IN COMPOSITION STUDIES AND CULTURAL STUDIES AND I HAVE SUFFERED FINANCIALLY FROM ALL OF THE INSTITUTIONAL ROADBLOCKS THROWN UP BY THE DEPARTMENT WHEN I WAS TRYING TO COMPLETE MY DISSERTATION AT SUNY ALBANY. I HAVE SUFFERED CONSIDERABLE FINANCIAL LOSS DUE TO WHAT HAS HAPPENED, AND I HAVE NOT RECEIVED THE PROPER INSTITUTIONAL AND DEPARTMENTAL SUPPORT, AS A WOMAN, IN GETTING BACK TO MY TEACHING CAREER. I HAVE AMPLE WRITTEN EVIDENCE THAT I SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED THE DEGREE BY NOW. I DO FEEL, VERY STRONGLY, THAT SEXISM HAS PLAYED A ROLE IN HOW I HAVE BEEN INDIFFERENTLY TREATED BY THE DEPARTMENT AND CAST ASIDE. MY CONCERNS WILL NOT BE CAST ASIDE ANY LONGER -- WHAT HAPPENED IN DECEMBER OF 2003 WAS BLATANTLY WRONG AND HOW I WAS TREATED THEREAFTER WAS ALSO BLATANTLY WRONG, AND I AM ONCE AGAIN REQUESTING THAT THE DEPARTMENT MAKE THINGS RIGHT FOR ME AND GIVE ME THE PROPER ASSISTANCE IN GETTING BACK TO MY TEACHING AND MY CAREER. I HAVE SUFFERED SIGNIFICANT FINANCIAL DAMAGE DUE TO ALL OF THIS.

SINCERELY,

DIANE K. OLSON

DEAR GRADUATE DIRECTOR AT SUNY ALBANY'S ENGLISH DEPARTMENT:

GREETINGS. I WAS A PHD CANDIDATE IN THE ENGLISH DEPARTMENT IN COMPOSITION STUDIES, POETICS AND CULTURAL STUDIES AS OF 2006 AND HAD TO STOP PURSUING THE DEGREE/DISSERTATION (WHICH I HAD PUT VERY EXTENSIVE EFFORT, TIME AND MONEY INTO) DUE TO INSTITUTIONAL POLITICS, LACK OF SUPPORT FROM MY COMMITTEE AND LACK OF FINANCIAL RESOURCES. I HAVE RECENTLY CONTACTED STEVE NORTH, WHO WAS MY CHAIR AT THE TIME (MY PREVIOUS CHAIR WAS CY KNOBLAUCH, WHO HAD TO LEAVE FOR UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA, CHARLOTTE IN 1999, THE SAME TIME I RECEIVED A TEACHING FELLOWSHIP AT GEORGIA TECH) YET HAVEN'T HEARD BACK FROM HIM IN SEVERAL MONTHS. I DID HEAR FROM HIM BRIEFLY EARLIER THIS YEAR IN RESPONSE TO A WEBSITE THAT I HAVE www.compositionstudies.com WHICH IS EVIDENCE THAT I AM STILL ACTIVELY AND PASSIONATELY INVOLVED IN WRITING ABOUT ISSUES IN THE FIELD OF COMPOSITION STUDIES. I HAVE ACTUALLY WORKED IN COMPOSITION STUDIES FOR NEARLY 27 YEARS NOW -- SINCE I WAS AN UNDERGRADUATE AND EVEN DID MY UNDERGRADUATE HONORS THESIS IN COMPOSITION STUDIES AND MULTICULTURALISM. THE REASON THAT I WOULD LIKE TO FINISH THE PHD NOW IS BECAUSE I REALLY WANT TO GET BACK TO TEACHING AND I HAVE APPLIED AT MANY UNIVERSITIES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY (I CURRENTLY RESIDE IN IOWA BUT HAVE LIVED ON THE EAST COAST IN NEW YORK AND ATLANTA, WHERE I HAD AN ABD TEACHING FELLOWSHIP IN THE SCHOOL OF LITERATURE, CULTURE AND COMMUNICATION). I AM A VERY GIFTED AND PASSIONATE TEACHER AND I CURRENTLY FEEL STRANDED IN THE SUBURBS OF WEST DES MOINES, IOWA WITHOUT EMPLOYMENT, WHERE I SHOULD NOT BE -- I SHOULD BE TEACHING RIGHT NOW. I STILL HAVE ALL OF MY DISSERTATION MATERIALS AND WRITINGS IN A BINDER AND MY CV IS POSTED ON MY WEBSITE www.compositionstudies.com (A SITE WHICH I HAVE HAD SINCE 2004). AND I AM STILL VERY PASSIONATE AND INVESTED IN THE ISSUES OF MY DISSERTATION, AS I ALWAYS HAVE BEEN. THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH I WAS FORCED TO ABANDON WORK ON MY PHD WERE EXTREMELY UNJUST AND UNFAIR TO ME AND I FEEL AS IF GENDER AND SEXISM HAD A STRONG ROLE TO PLAY IN THE LACK OF SUPPORT AND THE INSTITUTIONAL POLITICS THAT WERE GOING ON IN REGARDS TO MY DISSERTATION. THE PROBLEMS STARTED IN DECEMBER OF 2003, RIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS, WHEN I WAS SUDDENLY CONTACTED BY THE CURRENT CHAIR OF THE DEPARTMENT RICHARD BARNEY, WHO I UNDERSTAND IS STILL AT ALBANY, AND TOLD IN AN EMAIL THAT I HAD SERIOUS PROBLEMS WITH MY DISSERTATION DIRECTOR -- PROBLEMS NEVER, EVER CONVEYED TO ME PREVIOUSLY -- YET DR. BARNEY COULD NOT DISCUSS THOSE ISSUES UNTIL AFTER THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY. I FELT BETRAYED AT THE TIME AND IN THE DARK ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING ON AND WAS TRAUMATIZED BY THE LACK OF SUPPORT. IT IS STILL VERY FRESH IN MY MEMORY AND IS WHAT EVENTUALLY RESULTED IN THE LACK OF SUPPORT TO FINISH MY DISSERTATION, WHICH I RELUCTANTLY -- VERY RELUCTANTLY -- LAYED DOWN IN JULY OF 2006. I FELT EXTREMELY UNSUPPORTED DESPITE MY EXTENSIVE WRITING AND EVEN THOUGH I DID NOT RECEIVE MY PHD FOR ALL OF THE WORK THAT I DID AND TIME THAT I INVESTED, I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO FINISH THE PHD AND IN FACT NEED THAT PHD FOR TEACHING JOBS IN COMPOSITION STUDIES AND FURTHER EMPLOYMENT AND DO REGARD SUNY ALBANY (THE UNIVERSITY AT ALBANY) AS RESPONSIBLE FOR MY ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL STRUGGLES DUE TO NOT BEING ABLE TO COMPLETE THE PHD AND THROWING UP SO MANY INSTITUTIONAL ROADBLOCKS TO ITS COMPLETION.

SO THIS IS WHY I AM ADDRESSING YOU AND THE DEPARTMENT RIGHT NOW, AS I HAVE ALREADY EMAILED DR. STEVE NORTH RECENTLY ABOUT MY STRONG DESIRE TO FINISH THAT DISSERTATION WITH THE PROPER ACADEMIC AND INSTITUTIONAL SUPPORT -- IN FACT, MY NEED TO FINISH THAT DISSERTATION AND RECEIVE MY PHD WHICH I SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED MANY YEARS AGO AND AM MERITED TO RECEIVE BASED UPON ALL OF THE WRITINGS THAT I DID TOWARD THE PHD IN WRITING, TEACHING AND CRITICISM. I HAVE SUFFERED FINANCIALLY WITHOUT IT AND WITHOUT BEING IN AN ACADEMIC ENVIRONMENT AND AGAIN, I FEEL THAT THERE WAS A VERY STRONG GENDER BIAS GOING ON WITH THE BARRIERS THAT I ENCOUNTERED BETWEEN 2003 and 2006.

I CAN BE REACHED AT THE CELLPHONE  and THE EMAIL. . IT IS A NY CELLPHONE NUMBER BUT I HAVE RESIDED IN WEST DES MOINES, IOWA SINCE 2006. MY SITUATION CURRENTLY IS EXTREMELY UNJUST AND UNFAIR AND I DO STILL HOLD THE SUNY ALBANY ENGLISH DEPARTMENT AS ACCOUNTABLE AND RESPONSIBLE FOR HOW THIS HAS TURNED OUT.

SINCERELY,

DIANE K. OLSON

Dear James Lilley:

Thank you for the information about pursuing readmission into the program at UAlbany, which I will assume will not cancel out the fact that I passed my qualifying exams and was admitted to PHD Candidacy in January of 2003. Also, per your information, I will also be contacting Dr. Chantelle Cleary with all of the details regarding what I went through between 2003 and 2006 -- what I experienced was so unfair and unjust and is the reason I had to leave the program, especially when I was left without any intellectual or moral support. I know many male PhD students who graduated from UAlbany English who were not left stranded in the situation that I was.

SINCERELY,

DIANE K. OLSON

Dear James Lilley:

I have reconsidered your email and advice to me from this past fall and want to notify you and the department of English that as a PhD Candidate in Writing, Teaching and Criticism who did a a tremendous amount of writing toward my dissertation that I never received credit for and who feels that I was the recipient of severe and abusive gender discrimination and neglect by the department when I was working to complete the dissertation in a remote rural area with no financial support (and my director wrongly refused to help me apply for a dissertation scholarship and struck out at me in an abusive way in response to a dissertation chapter) that I regard the English Department at SUNY Albany as financially and legally liable for your neglect of my support needs and my situation while trying to complete the dissertation without proper moral, intellectual and financial support. I feel that the way that I was treated by your department was blatant sexism and I also feel that you wrongly making me jump through the hoop of reapplying for admission when I was already a PhD Candidate and the only reason I did not finish was because I lacked the moral, intellectual and financial support to finish and being stranded in a rural area without the financial resources to leave -- to ignore my situation when I kept writing letters to the administration and the department about my situation was sexism and abusive to me and now to make me reapply for admission when I already did a tremendous amount of work toward the PhD is also abusive and sexist. And I regard the department and the university as financially liable for the loss in income that I have suffered as a result of not having the PhD in hand that I need in order to get jobs -- again, see my website www.compositionstudies.com which proves that I have remained active in the field and am very gifted at what I do in composition studies. Your advice to me this past fall is totally wrong and also sexist in making me reapply for admission when I was already a PhD candidate in the department and did NOT -- by my own will -- stop working toward the PhD -- what happened with me being stranded in rural Iowa with no way to get out and no financial nor intellectual nor moral support was ABUSIVE and SEXIST and I am taking action now because I have needed that PhD to get jobs. NO MALE PHD STUDENT WOULD HAVE EVER BEEN LEFT IN THAT SITUATION OR MADE TO REAPPLY FOR WHAT THEY HAD ALREADY WORKED VERY HARD FOR!!! I WILL BE SEEKING LEGAL ACTION FOR THE FINANCIAL AND CAREER DAMAGES THAT I HAVE SUFFERED FOR THE DEPARTMENT'S NEGLECT BECAUSE WHAT HAS HAPPENED HAS BEEN VERY, VERY HURTFUL TO ME. MARK MY WORDS.

SINCERELY,

DIANE K. OLSON


THE RELATIONSHIPS AND TENSIONS BETWEEN COMPOSITION STUDIES, CULTURAL STUDIES AND POETICS (CREATIVE WRITING) IN A GRADUATE PROGRAM IN ENGLISH STUDIES

MY DISSERTATION WAS ENTITLED "'THE OTHER CULTURE WARS: THE CONFLICTS BETWEEN CULTURAL STUDIES, COMPOSITION STUDIES AND CREATIVE WRITING IN A GRADUATE PROGRAM IN ENGLISH STUDIES." THERE ARE MANY REASONS THAT I CHOSE TO DO SUCH A DISSERTATION -- BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, I WANTED TO SHOW THAT THERE WAS -- AND STILL IS -- A  MIDDLE GROUND TO THESE TENSIONS AND WAYS TO CREATIVELY AND IMAGINATIVELY RESOLVE THE DIFFERENCES THAT WERE CAUSING SO MUCH TENSION AND CONFLICT IN THE GRADUATE PROGRAM THAT I WAS ATTENDING AT THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK AT ALBANY. I HAVE BEEN A GRADUATE STUDENT AND AN INSTRUCTOR -- INCLUDING A TEACHING FELLOW -- IN FOUR DIFFERENT PROGRAMS IN THE USA THAT HAVE HAD A CULTURAL STUDIES COMPONENT, AND I AM VERY IMPASSIONED ABOUT MY WORK AND TEACHING IN CULTURAL STUDIES AND HAVE BEEN SINCE I WAS AN UNDERGRADUATE.  YET I AM ALSO VERY IMPASSIONED ABOUT THE TEACHING OF COMPOSITION AND THEORIES ABOUT THE TEACHING OF COMPOSITION STUDIES, AND HAVE ALSO WORKED IN COMPOSITION STUDIES AND COMPOSITION PEDAGOGY  SINCE I WAS AN UNDERGRADUATE.  IN EACH PROGRAM THAT I HAVE TAUGHT IN, THERE HAS BEEN A DIFFERENT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COMPOSITION STUDIES AND CULTURAL STUDIES -- YET THERE WAS A PARTICULARLY TENSE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO AREAS WHEN I WAS A PHD STUDENT AT SUNY ALBANY AND MANY OF THE COMPOSITION STUDIES FACULTY ENDED UP LEAVING THE PROGRAM DUE TO THE TENSIONS AND THE LACK OF HOSPITALITY TOWARDS COMPOSITION STUDIES -- EVEN AS THE PROGRAM WAS ONCE A PROGRAM WHERE COMPOSITION STUDIES THRIVED AND SUNY ALBANY HAS SENT MANY OF ITS GRADUATES TO LIBERAL ARTS UNIVERSITIES THROUGHOUT THE USA TO INNOVATIVELY TEACH WRITING, POETICS AND LITERATURE.   YET THERE WERE SERIOUS AND DEBILITATING TENSIONS AND STRUGGLES BETWEEN CULTURAL STUDIES AND COMPOSITION STUDIES AT SUNY ALBANY, WITH MANY OF THE CULTURAL THEORISTS WANTING TO ARGUE THAT COMPOSITION STUDIES WASN'T "RIGOROUS" ENOUGH -- WHICH SIMPLY JUST WAS NOT TRUE AT ALL BECAUSE MANY COMPOSITIONISTS TEACH CULTURAL STUDIES TEXTS AND FRAMEWORKS AS PART OF THEIR COURSES AND MANY COMPOSITIONISTS ARE CONCERNED WITH THE ISSUES OF ACCESSIBILITY IN CULTURAL STUDIES AND MAKING CULTURAL STUDIES TEXTS ACCESSIBLE TO UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS AND WITH USING WRITING TO INTRODUCE STUDENTS TO CULTURAL STUDIES FRAMEWORKS AND WAYS OF RE-ENVISIONING AND CHALLENGING THE CAPITALISTIC SOCIETY THAT WE LIVE IN IN THE USA.  ONE OF THE ISSUES THAT I HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT PREVIOUSLY IS THAT WHEN CULTURAL STUDIES WANTS TO CLAIM "RIGOR," ITS TEXTS AND TEACHINGS BECOME OVERLY DENSE AND EVEN TOO OPPRESSIVE FOR UNDERGRADUATES TO UNDERSTAND AND WORK WITH.  RIGOR IS NOT NECESSARILY A GOOD THING AT THE UNDERGRADUATE LEVEL WHEN TEACHING CULTURAL STUDIES BECAUSE MANY STUDENTS ARE NOT YET PREPARED TO ENGAGE THE DENSE TEXTS AND IF CULTURAL STUDIES TRULY WANTS TO TRANSFORM THE WORLD AND THE WORLDS THAT STUDENTS LIVE IN, THEN IT NEEDS TO BE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT ISSUES OF ACCESSIBILITY AND TRANSLATABILITY THAN WITH RIGOR AND GOING OVER THE HEADS OF THE STUDENTS TRYING TO LEARN ABOUT  CULTURAL RELATIONS, COMPETING VALUES AND POWER RELATIONS IN SOCIETY -- VERY IMPORTANT ISSUES WHEN WE WANT OUR STUDENTS TO BE THINKING ABOUT AND WRITING ABOUT WHAT NEEDS IMPROVEMENT AND REVIVAL AND REFORMATION IN OUR AMERICAN CULTURE AS WE FIND IT TODAY.   AND THERE SEEMS TO BE A HUGE GULF BETWEEN HOW COMPOSITION STUDIES APPROACHES CULTURAL STUDIES AND AIMS TO TEACH ITS FRAMEWORKS AND INQUIRIES TO UNDERGRADUATES, THROUGH WRITING PROJECTS, AND HOW CULTURAL STUDIES AS AN (OVER)SPECIALIZATION TEACHES CULTURAL STUDIES TEXTS AT THE GRADUATE LEVEL.  I WAS WRITING ABOUT THESE ISSUES IN MY DISSERTATION BUT THEN RAN INTO INSTITUTIONAL POLITICS AND RESISTANCE WHEN I WAS TRYING TO COMPLETE MY DISSERTATION.  MANY UNNECESSARY HURDLES WERE THROWN-UP BY SOME OF THE FACULTY -- AS IF THEY DID NOT WANT TO SEE THE MIDDLE GROUND THAT I WAS TRYING TO REPRESENT AND FIND A COMMON, MUTUAL  GROUND BETWEEN COMPOSITION STUDIES, CULTURAL STUDIES AND POETICS AND UNDERSTAND THEIR JOINT AND SHARED INTERESTS AND INVESTMENTS IN TEACHING STUDENTS ABOUT HOW CULTURE IS SHAPED AND HOW CULTURE CAN BE TRANSFORMED.  IT IS SAD BECAUSE SUNY ALBANY'S PHD PROGRAM IN WRITING, TEACHING AND CRITICISM HAS PRODUCED MANY OUTSTANDING AND DEDICATED AND CARING TEACHERS AT THE UNIVERSITY LEVEL WHO AIM TO REFORM THE TEACHING OF COMPOSITION STUDIES AND CULTURAL STUDIES THROUGH THEIR TEACHING AT OTHER UNIVERSITIES.  I AM STILL LOOKING FOR A UNIVERSITY PROGRAM IN COMPOSITION STUDIES THAT WILL TAKE ME ABOARD THIS YEAR (2017) OR NEXT YEAR (2018) TO CONTINUE MY WORK IN THE TEACHING OF COMPOSITION STUDIES, CULTURAL STUDIES AND POETICS, AND I WOULD APPRECIATE HEARING FROM YOUR PROGRAM IF YOU HAVE TEACHING POSITIONS IN THESE AREAS AVAILABLE. MORE ON MY DISSERTATION PROJECT AND  THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN COMPOSITION, POETICS AND CULTURAL STUDIES ON THIS BLOG IN THE FUTURE. SINCERELY,  DIANE K. OLSON 


TEACHING RIGHTEOUS, HOLY FIRE, HOLY SPIRIT WRITING THAT CHALLENGES AND RESISTS THE INSTITUTIONALIZATION AND CORPORATIZATION OF OUR STUDENTS' EDUCATIONS AND LIVES

WE NEED COMPOSITION COURSES THAT TEACH  RIGHTEOUS, HOLY FIRE, HOLY SPIRIT WRITING THAT CHALLENGE AND RESIST THE CORPORATIZATION AND INSTITUALIZATION OF OUR STUDENTS' EDUCATIONS AND LIVES. WE NEED TO TEACH CREATIVE WRITINGS SUCH AS MICHELLE CLIFF'S "IF I COULD WRITE THIS IN FIRE, I WOULD WRITE THIS FIRE" THAT CHALLENGES AND RESISTS THE OPPRESSION THAT OCCURS IN MANY EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS AND CORPORATIONS.  WHEREVER THERE IS CREATIVE AND IMAGINATIVE RESISTANCE TO OPPRESSION IN THE WORLD TODAY, THERE IS THE HOLY SPIRIT MIGHTILY MOVING ON BEHALF OF LORD JESUS AND OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER TO CREATE A BETTER WORLD AND BETTER EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES THAT EMBRACE THE CREATIVE ARTS AND THE GENERATIVE IMAGINATIVE CAPACITY OF OUR STUDENTS AND US, AS TEACHERS, TO RE-ENVISION A WORLD THAT WELCOMES DIVERSITY AND RESISTS OPPRESSION WHEREVER THAT OPPRESSION OCCURS, INCLUDING IN HIGHER EDUCATION TODAY AS IT HAS INCREASINGLY BECOME CORPORATIZED AND WRONGLY PLACES ECONOMIC PROFIT AND SCHOLARSHIP AND RESEARCH ABOVE AND BEYOND THE FAR MORE SIGNIFICANT, IMPORTANT AND VALUABLE WORK OF TEACHING AND ENCOURAGING THE LEARNING AND CREATIVITY OF STUDENTS.  THERE IS SO MUCH THAT NEEDS AND DEMANDS IMPROVEMENT AND REFORM IN OUR UNIVERSITIES TODAY, INCLUDING THE VALUING OF TEACHING AND STUDENTS' LEARNING OVER AND ABOVE ECONOMIC PROFIT AND THE CORPORATIZATION OF HIGHER EDUCATION, WHICH MANY IN COMPOSITION STUDIES HAVE TRIED TO CALL ATTENTION TO AND CHALLENGE AND WHICH MANY, ESPECIALLY IN THE SUNY ALBANY PROGRAM IN WRITING, TEACHING AND CRITICISM HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT AND TAUGHT AGAINST IN THEIR COURSES.   MORE YET TO COME ON THIS BLOG ON THESE ISSUES WHICH ARE VERY IMPORTANT TO ME, AS A UNIVERSITY TEACHER OF COMPOSITION STUDIES AND CULTURAL STUDIES, AND OTHER COMPOSITION TEACHERS WHO HAVE TRIED ADAMANTLY TO SHED LIGHT ON THE PROBLEMS WITH THE CORPORATIZATION AND INSTITUTIONALIZATION OF LEARNING AND THE TEACHING OF WRITING IN HIGHER EDUCATION TODAY.   SINCERELY, DIANE K.
